Over at Radar, “Insiders reveal television’s most hated pundits.” Chris Matthews made the list! Over at Viva Chuck Todd, they asked, “What is the proper name for The Chuck’s facial hair?” Most of you said, “I would never be so presumptuous as to tell The Chuck what to call his facial hair.” Today’s “Angry Journalist” rant of the day: “I’m tired of having to compete against bloggers: People with no journalism training who put up information about breaking news on their Web site before we doâ€“they don’t bother to verify if their facts are correct (THEY OFTEN AREN’T).
