I'm not referring to politics, just news in general. it's weird and crazy how 
each station can report the same story, but yet somehow manage to always make 
them so contrasting. (This is just my observation. so It could be just me)

My mistake. H & C are on Fox, Yeah I watch them, but earlier I meant to refer 
to John King and Wolf Blitzer.

Anyway, no political discussion here,  just hoping to have a discussion of TV 
in general. :-)

And for fun, I love to watch "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central. Jon Stewart 
is hilarious. He cracks on everybody from democrats to hobo's and thats one of 
the biggest things I like about him.
