Is anyone else tired of the CNN talk heads? I'm sick of most major media talk heads but since CNN is the biggest, I'm going to talk about them, but I'm talking about everybody as well.

The problem I have with most media talk heads is that, NONE of them have ever been exposed to the real world like most of us have been. I am white woman, who went to the public school systems in the inner city as a child, grew up mostly poor and was sexually abused as a child. I did some research on Anderson Cooper, Katie Curious, Soledad Obrien and others, and all these talk heads have very wealthy and privileged upbringings. You don't necessarily have to be rich to be privileged by the way. Some folks get hand picked to get a free ride through the system and then they take all the credit for it. Now, I'm not saying their lives were without pain or conflict, but they really have NO idea what it's like out there. So why are they the ones reporting on the news for the general public? Please get some people on the air with some substance! I'm talking people like me who had a history like I did. I can tell you what it's really like out there and not look down my nose at anyone.

I get so sick and tired of their snobby attitudes that come across clearly through the screen and report on peoples misery like these people are beneath them. I think Soledad really annoys me the most.

I don't want to turn this into a political debate because all networks are like this, including Fox.

I am merely talking about the talk heads these networks choose. I get easily offended by them because of their high and might attitudes. Get off my TV screen you spoiled brats , you never would have gotten where you are without the power and influences that got you there on that news channel! I will never respect that and you shouldn't respect yourselves because you didn't get your position through your own Merritt! BAM!

Google them if you don't believe me. Anderson Cooper, Soledad Obrien, Katie Curioc, etc , all very privileged upbringings and full of connections.

No. I don't watch them. Maybe you shouldn't either.

It's not just the talking heads on CNN~~
It's in the local news as well.

We have to remember, long gone are the days of really good reporters and journalist.

One more thing~~
I can't stand the commercials on tv anymore, I just
can't take it.
We downgraded our cable to the point, it's nothing
but paid for digital rabbit ears for reception.
I've become used to not listening to repetitive,
bad news.

About the commercials, I just said the SAME thing this morning. How ironic. Glad to know I am not the only one and I agree with everything else you said too.
