Journalism As Profession Dies With Contrasting Coverage Of Bush, Obama Inaugurations

  Profusely thanking MSNBC for their “help” during President Obama’s first term in office, senior Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett’s remarks killed a little part of me.  A news agency should not be “thanked” for helping the partisan antics of either party, its sole job is to report the news.  Reporting the news is a job at…
