Let us not lose our mission, humanity & dreams in our careers, deception & hype.

Some thoughtful journalism, and humanity, can be seen in the sadness on Anderson’s face. We do not have to enjoy putting others down, especially when they have done the lowering, themselves.

Not enjoying hype, spectacle, or human frailty and sadness.

  1. […] gave him props for this unrelated story, just two days ago. Doing journalism right, and not taking cheap shots at those […]

    I don't know. I found Anderson's behavior disappointing. I don't necessarily approve of her or her decisions but he did have her on the show as a guest. My guess is she is in a lot of pain and really suffering as a human being which doesn't excuse her behavior but what good does humiliating her on national tv do?. How does that help any one ? I actually thought it was a little hypocritical. Have her on the show as a guest for ratings and then tell her she's dreadful and he doesn't want to talk to her so he can appear all righteous. It was pretty mean spirited.

    I agree with surya 100%. Having her on the show seemed to be for ratings' sake…now putting her down publicly after her appearance seems hypocritical. This woman definitely needs some therapy to figure out why she is unhappy with who she is at every turn…or to discover why she needs to have so much attention on herself. Hoping she figures it out soon.
