TODAY'S LETTERS: Chris Matthews Interview, Soldier's Death in Afghanistan and Journalism Ethics

Article excerpt

Readers responded today about E&P's new podcast feature. They also still had plenty to say today about the Chris Matthew's Interview on The Daily Show, the death of a soldier in Afghanistan as well as a column about jounalism ethics.

Jon Stewart Dismantles Chris MatthewsI don't know why there is such outrage around Stewart's grilling of Chris Matthews. I thought it was an appropriate response to a book that is a shallow treatise on survival. It's about time the media broke ranks with itself.

This is great. First of all if your letter writers are a representative sample of viewers they show how ignorant they are. Jon Stewart is not now or ever been a media person. He has a live comedy show which is a parody of what passes for media journalism these days. I do not say that to mock Jon Stewart he says the same thing himself. It is not a real news show any more than Saturday Night Live was back when they were funny and did political skits. He even said in an interview awhile back he worries that young people today are saying they get their news from his show.

The second thing that is so funny is all the Liberals who thought he was so great when he was poking fun at the President and the Conservatives are now somehow insulted and irate that he is also doing this at the expense of Democrats. Wake up people the Democrats are winning and may soon have a lock on everything like the Republicans have had and now they will be the center of Jon and all the other political pundits.

This is an extremely suspicious "coincidence" and the Army ought to come clean on the facts she had found which apparently led to her death.

How far down the rabbit hole do ya wanna go?

...and how bad do you want to find the truth?

What cost are you willing to bear in order to find out what really happened and why?

Remember: She worked in disbursing.

The fact that she was gay is only a side story, however important.

...and Delahunt, Kerry and Kennedy are pulling the wool over your eyes. …
