Yeah, I'm doomed...

Why? Because I weighed in on an idiotic discussion going on at TVNewser.com, talking about an on-air confrontation between MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and David Shuster.

Here's what I posted...

This is one of the most unprofessional moments I've ever seen on live television. Scarborough interjecting snide remarks over top of the (intended to be opinion-free, but seldom are) news segments of his show, and then hammering Shuster about his political affiliation (or lack thereof)?

It's truly a shame that the profitability requirements of television news (or more precisely, the inexplicable success of a particular enterprise) has caused everybody to think they have to pick a side and not deviate from it.

The only thing that's engendered is a distrust by the American people of journalism as a whole, the elevation of pinheads who can shout louder than the next guy, and a slew of unprofessional moments like this.

What will likely happen is that my remarks will get lost in the shuffle...but seeing some of the remarks of the trolls who live there, I'm halfway expecting some interesting emails.

Why do I do this to myself?
