I was down and out, but not old Wolf

Any number of interesting things have been happening during my enforced hiatus.  Among my favorites, because it played beautifully into the CNN stereotype happened Thursday:

wolf blitzerThe ever-breathless Wolf  Blitzer, he of the respiratory reflex that causes him, while exhaling, to say “the BEST political coverage on television”.  Him. (His voice makes my teeth hurt.) Lead story at 4pm? A CNN reporter was teargassed while covering the small protest at the G20 Pittsburgh meeting. I knew it was Pittsburgh and the G20, but Wolf was too breathless to mention that part. Because “our live CNN reporter was TEARGASSED”.  There was endless video of the reporter, of the sidewalk under the reporter and of the brick wall near the reporter. I feel better for having seen that.
