Piece of advice- learn to control that uncontrollable desire to write, at least until you can learn to think!

We don’t have 15 years so let’s just play WHACK A MOLE as they surface. I like that plan better.

“Brian Tam, Fox News Intern”
This says all you need to know. Interns know what their bosses want to hear. On the night Newt won South Carolina with Sarah’s help, I watched Fox for about two hours just to watch them squirm. That was the first time in 2 1/2 years. The next time I watch Fox will be when hell freezes over.

The writer can't even figure out if they want to talk in the past tense or present tense, often mixing them in the same sentence.

I teach my 2nd graders how to write better than this....


You do teach them about having agreement between a singular noun and a pronoun referring to it, right?

Poor Brian Tam, bringing disrepute to Fox through his thorough mangling of the English language. I've known FOB Chinese students who could write English better than he can. Of course, they were University of Chicago freshmen, so that probably selected upwards for English language ability.

Yep I was lazy...it was 5 am here when I wrote that and I didn't feel like looking back to see if the writer was a male or a female so I didn't use "he" or "she".

My comment was still better writing than the author of this piece....

When I worked for a magazine publishing house, everything I wrote passed through my editor for syntax, spelling and grammar....and sometimes even a second level of editorial scrutinizing.

Now, no one in the internet media really cares anymore. The writing is churned out and standards be damned.

The quality of journalistic writing on the Huff and Puff Post is appalling, for example.

Factual misstatement of her career.

He states as fact that she had no prior experience before Governor and was only in government for two years.

She was Mayor of her town for 7 years.

DUH.

Since her vice presidential loss in 2008, Sarah Palin has not nearly as invested in national horse race politics.

Brian Tam is no command of English language.

Today INTERN does NOT create an intuitive feeling of academic excellence!

Given the book release today of a former 19 year old INTERN to JFK (18 month affair), it is another data point on why the WHITE HOUSE should be renamed DEMOCRAP WHORE HOUSE!

The writer (?) states..."I tend to frequently critique my writing as well as others". So he choses to write about Palin, though she's not significant he says....and then he writes worse than his educational depicts he should. He needs to start over and fast.

Too bad for Fox, they don't seem to be picking the best and the brightest as once did and have resorted to run of the mill who lack the appropriate grey matter to get the job done.

Typical liberal nutcase full of himself.

Whomever this Brian Tam is, he has contributed nothing to any knowledge base.

He appears to be the collator of short versions of every ignorant comment that has ever been erroneously directed at America’s favorite politician.

He’d be a good fit at PMSNBC.

They are afraid, very afraid. The left is terrified of Sarah. She is their worst nightmare.
If Sarah is so irrelevant, why waste all that ink & energy trying to destroy her?

She was also chairwoman of the state energy commission and a city councilwoman for a while, too. But this little shitzu couldn’t be bothered taking 30 seconds to look at her bio.

Reading Sarah Palin's book(s) should be a prerequisite to making public statements about Sarah.

Opinions based on bias should be recognized as such.

That is why I don’t watch FNC anymore.

I am tired of them going into establishment hyper drive during election time, and then gaining some semblance of normalcy in between.

IOW, I am tired of them trying to suck the life out of conservatives.

The primary and caucuses tonight were great examples of their “unbiased...we report, you decide” reporting.

I’ve decided.

Some miscellaneous thoughts:

1. Given his name and photo, English may very well be his second language. If so, he needs to work harder to master it. I'm married into an Asian family and I'm not unaware of the challenges of learning English, but he needs to do so if he intends to work in a communications-related field in the United States.

2. I'm glad Free Republic and the internet didn't exist when I was 21 and writing things for college classes. I suspect some of what I wrote, though conservative, would have been deservedly criticized here. I suspect he'll find this Free Republic thread fairly soon and will be mortified — if not, somebody at FOX News will likely find it and point it out to him.

3. My journalism professors would have failed me if I wrote something like this. So would my high school or junior high teachers.

4. In fairness to the intern, he is interning in video production, not the print side of the J-school. I've seen some **REALLY** bad writing coming from people who have spent years in the broadcast media. They need to look and sound good on air, and writing skills are secondary at best. Spelling is irrelevant on-air, and grammar may not be especially important depending on the context.

5. Finally, to the intern, if he's reading this: THINK BEFORE YOU PUT STUFF ON THE INTERNET ABOUT POLITICS IF YOU WANT TO GET HIRED IN THE NEWS MEDIA!!!! I've spent more years in the media than you've been alive, and I know what things are like when it comes to hiring. For nearly all of those years I had to be very careful **NOT** to let people learn my political views, and since my editors and colleagues did know I was a conservative, I had to work much harder to prove I wasn't biased toward conservative candidates and issues. Maybe you'll get away with writing something like this as a FOX News intern, but you've severely damaged your potential for hiring by posting political things online. It's simply not smart.

Unmitigated stupidity, uninformed drivel, and out of touch with reality from a wannabe journalist that could be out done by any conservative junior high journalism student.

It’s the war within the party that concerns me.

I will never condone what John Sununu, et al have done in the name of Mitt Romney.
