I am not interested in the take of @stinky on the Fort Hood shootings or any other current events. I am watching CNN because I expect them to gather the news, not act as a clearinghouse for any bonehead with a computer, a cable modem and a half-baked opinion.
I agree. If I wanted to listen to a bunch of people rant–often illogically–about the latest news stories, I’d go to a bar or a coffee shop. A news organization should filter out the noise, not promote it. Twitter has its place in this world, but this is just a ratings grab.
