He who pays the piper

WorldNetDaily: CBS veteran rips network: "We have literally dumbed down our public," he continued. "We have trained them to accept the coverage they're getting. We so rarely explain what's going on, there's no context. So, people of course, aren't interested. They have no idea what's going on."

So this is what happens when a veteran CBS journalist retires and becomes free to speak. Funny, it doesn't sound much like the huffing and puffing and contrasting of reliable mainstream media with an ill-informed and unreliable blogosphere. Could it be the paycheck that makes the difference?
