    Paul Begala was clearly correct when he admonished journalists for equally blaming by weighing false equivalency. To be clear of blame, journalists are now "sitting- on- the-fense" so as not to offend either side by directing their questions incorrectly. The law is the law, and there is a clear right and wrong in the case of the shut down of government when legislation has been passed and no longer needs approval. The national polling is a better indication of how the people are responding then the job some journalists are attempting to do because of fear of criticism. It is times like these when journalists are tested for their command and know-how in the business and the people see through poor interrogation.

    Please take this woman and her "opinions" off the TV. The problem is.....nobody cares about her or anyone else's opinion, because it's opinion, not facts. Ashley Banfield, Nancy Grace, same difference. Two people who's opinions were ignored growing up, now with a voice that is killing what's good in the US

    I have a problem with news commentators when speaking of the President of the United States address him as Mr. Obama, seriously? I'm sure you and all other news commentators feel you deserve respect I would think the President of the United States well deserves the same respect
    Thank you, and I hope this will be addressed.

    Ashleigh,
    When it came to the Michael Brown shooting you really did not know there were multiple eye witnesses?

    I hate to say this but aren't you at least a little responsible when it comes to doing research? I read the FIRST autopsy ONLINE the day it was completed. I HEARD the eye witnesses talking the day of the shooting in a phone conversation that day ONLINE. These "mad internet skills" are no special ability they are simple tasks we use to search out the facts.

    I really have to recommend that you stop listening to CNN reporting. It is quite pitiful when I, an an internet jockey can get more accurate and reliable information 1000 miles away from an incident, ONLINE than you can with all the sources at your disposal. Stop drinking the media cool aid and regurgitating it verbatim and actually do some research.

    Do you want to talk facts about the event? Facts about the Trayvon Martin incident? I have them and know them because I do the research. I want to KNOW and I have learned that the truth is not always found on lame stream media. Perhaps because Main Stream Media serves a wealthy master whose sole intent is to manipulate the court of public opinion and the "facts" are adjusted to suit their agenda?

    You now know there was no "Racial" intent when Michale Brown was shot, only a thug attacking a cop, AS witnessed. All the rest was created and inflated by the media which you work for and facts are there is a race agenda taking place and both black and white Americans with intelligence recognize it. The rest are easily manipulated. Not one business had to burn, not one "eye witness" had to be murdered but that is exactly what race baiters and the media did. They took a non situation and inflated it with an agenda and businesses were lost and good people died.

    The media is responsible. Not once did Michael Brown have his hands up and not once did he say "Don't shoot". All that was lies made by a convicted felon and Michale's buddy.

    So where do we go from here?
