Nightly Business Report's Stupid Videos

I watched NBR tonight. Unfortunately Paul Kangas was off, so we were left to Susie Gharib and Jeff Yastine. Then we had a story about Research in Motion, during which we had to watch someone playing with his Blackberry. It never fails. A story about Intel, and we must see computer chips being manufactured. A story about Delta, and NBR forces us to watch aircraft landing and taking off. NBR must think that its viewers are village idiots. Here's a tip to NBR - just present the story. Eliminate the dumbed-down videos.

  1. Your 'dumbed-down videos' observations shows a complete lack of knowledge about television news. What do you want to watch while an anchor reads a story about something like 'chip-manufacturing'? Do you really want to look at an anchor's face for the next 20-30 seconds?

    Your blog comes off more like a daily rant, than anything resembling informed comment about public television.
