I love that shot. I remember seeing it and it the first thing to mind when I think of the Media. She was talking about how bad it was and then two dudes walk past. Classic.

News organizations have become increasingly partisan and corrupt over the past 30 years...the period of time that Boomers have been involved in significant ways.

What's different now is that they don't operate in a vacuum anymore, and they can't withstand any amount of scrutiny.

Here is how it happened.....

At the top of the 7 o’clock hour, Matt Lauer introduced the report:

“ … But first, the severe flooding here in the Northeast, as more rain continues to fall today. NBC’s Michelle Kosinski—I guess, she’s in a canoe …. ”

Boy, was she! From the belly of the craft, Ms. Kosinski delivered a report in which she described evacuation efforts and mentioned that there was deeper, rougher water nearby. Just as she was kicking it back to Katie Couric, the two men splashed their way into the frame.

Mr. Lauer perked up. “Is there some kind of severe drop-off there between the foreground that we—go back,” he said. “We saw these guys a second ago, Michelle, walking—are these holy men walking on top of water? What’s going on here?”

Ms. Kosinski, who last month was named this year’s “hot reporter” on Rolling Stone magazine’s annual “Hot List,” improvised gamely. “Why walk,” she said, “when you can ride?”

“Is your oar hitting the ground, Michelle?” asked Ms. Couric, not one to miss so golden an opportunity.

“Of course not,” Ms. Kosinski replied. “It’s as smooth as silk.”

For some reason, I was thinking that picture was from Katrina. I do remember seeing that picture on FR more than once.

Here’s an old bookmark you might enjoy. Another classic from the dying, socialist “mainstream” Democrat news establishment:

Bush's fault that the Russians seized the North Pole and ate Santa Claus.

That one is the best ever... even better than the idiot reporter standing out in the wind and rain of the huricane, only to move 10 feet to his left where the wind was not lashing much at all the minute he thinks the scene is over.

News agency Reuters has been forced to admit that footage it released last week purportedly showing Russian submersibles on the seabed of the North Pole actually came from the movie Titanic.

Ouch! LOL.

You can't make this stuff up folks.

Zombie is sooo good with those. I remember the one with the black-hooded guy on the box.

So powerful.

And Cindy Sheehan with Jesse Jackson. They were very eye-opening.

I love how Zombie does that.

LOL!! Too funny.

They kept giving us the Lebanese widow too, right? Which is why I call them Roto-Reuters... good just for flushing.

It was a 13 year old Finnish schoolboy that sank Reuter's deceptive use of video.

The mistake was only revealed after a 13-year-old Finnish schoolboy contacted a local newspaper to tell them the images looked identical to those used in the movie.

I want to think those guys knew there was some deceit going on in that live broadcast and they decided to take matters into their own hands. LOL!!

Yup Iz, after Adnan Hajj's fiasco, I concluded that AP, Reuters and UPI were simply news services whose articles and reporting I would ignore.

These guys have no idea the kind of trouble they are in.

Like the NYT, when they get it, it will be too late, and I will personally laugh as I watch them TANK!

You can tell that the destruction of Reuters is sad, because there's a stuffed toy nearby.

Very, very funny.
