    Yup.
    The moment they offer an opinion is when they have become
    commentators or even more accurately.........a pundit.
    If I want an opinion I will ask my wife.
    Then she tells me what my opinion is going to be....

    Too late.
    A few years ago in this area a local restaurant was giving away a Pulitzer Prize with every order of fries.

    The vast majority of news hacks that offer their own opinions are propogandists. To be a worthwhile pundit or opinion writer, you have to do a reasonable job of presenting counterarguments - and I mean real counterarguments, not straw men or red herrings. There aren't many of those around. In a perfect world, we wouldn't need many, but we are SO overloaded with propogandists these days...

    I mostly shoot for a bit of humor with a dash of my vast knowledge base thrown in.
    The only time I do get a bit testy is when someone comes in and yells "FIRE!!!!"
    when there isn't even firewood available. It's a reflex action. Kind of like an Olympic
    class face palm when I watch a liberal try to tell the truth.
