So was Maddow the one who came up with "teabagging"? If so, she shouldn't be on TV.

Well, I don't think he should be on TV anyway...One Olbermann is enough.

He (Maddow) had two finance guys on from NPR the other night, and as much as he (maddow) tried to tie the financial crisis to Bush, they gave no quarter. They explained the history and years of bad policy (by both parties) that led to this mess. He (maddow) is such a tool!

eh, like 2% of their funding is from the gov. these days they're pretty much supporting themselves on syndication and private funding.

i kinda like them keeping 1 or 2% publicly funded just for more incentive to stay fair.

too late, these are tough times and we've got to make cuts somewhere. Sorry, but Diane Rhems has to be cut up and put into a soup that will feed the poor and starving.

one thing that lady yelling at the reporter didn't do: reject the extremists.

when 1 out of 5 signs is "obama = hitler," just yelling at a reporter that it doesn't represent everyone isn't good enough. you need to actually fix the situation so you can have a peaceful and rational protest. go up to those people and tell them that they are not helping and are making a mockery of what the event stands for.

as long as those people are there, that is the story. you can't blame anyone for that. if you don't like it, then reject them.

screaming at a reporter for covering the most interesting thing at the event is not accomplishing a whole lot.

She has no more right to tell those people to get with the program than they do telling her what to say and think. It's should be more reasonable for a "journalist" to fairly report the event than to bitch about the protester trying to set the reporter straight. I just know that all liberals think alike and act alike during their own protests; you'd never have problems with others straying from the "message."

if that was the case why was that lady in the video upset about the reporter showing the wrong type of people? why get upset about the signs they show or the people they talk to?

Because she was ONLY showing the extreme participants, and implying that they were the norm, and she was taking the protesters to task, challenging them, rather than reporting .... I don't know why I can't believe you don't understand that. I should know you better by now.

    • I've worked as an IT contractor for the state of Texas for the past 6 years. I do basic IT hardware support mainly supporting equipment that is a decade old and obsolete. I do stuff like requisition a new hard drive for a server and replace it. Or troubleshoot network problems. If I can't solve a problem I move the ticket up the chain. Pretty basic stuff. I'm currently studying for a CompTIA A+ certification and an MTA cert just to make my resume look better. I was given word that our contract with the state is not being renewed. It expires August 31, so I'm going to be laid off unless my company can find somewhere else for me to work. We've already laid off 10 people since this time last year and my team only has 3 people left on it. The work is drying up as the state moves more and more to virtual server technology so I'm like 99% sure I'm being let go. I'll probably get 4-5 weeks of severance and I can apply for unemployment. Austin has an insurance program for musicians I can apply for since part of my income comes from playing music. I've been trying to get a new job doing basic tech support or even call center type stuff but the jobs are either terrible, like want someone with the kind of experience I have but pay $12/ho and I won't be able to afford my rent, or they require stuff that is way over my head. I went to school for audio engineering at UNCA,. I didn't really intend on pursuing IT as a career, but music doesn't pay poo and I kind of have to go in this direction. I'm pretty depressed because I've been searching for a new job for years, and I've had interviews and whatnot, but the jobs either don't pay enough for me to leave my current position or they require stuff I don't have and/or want to pursue. I feel like I'm stuck in neutral. I'm almost 30 and I feel like my career hasn't gone anywhere and I'm going to be making just a little above entry level pay my whole life.  Anyone ever been in this situation before? How did you make your career take off, or find something you were passionate about and run with it?
