Today we have another installment of: “Ask Piranhamous Anything.” And we do mean anything. Send your queries to FishbowlDC@mediabistro.com. This isn’t an advice column — Piranhamous doesn’t know what the hell you should do with your life any more than you do — and worse, he doesn’t care. Try to keep your questions short — we want to keep this fun, simple and insightful.
1. Do you think CNN’s poop cruise coverage was excessive or just right?
That’s a question not asked nearly often enough, and some would say everything CNN covers is “poop,” but I’m straying. Why passengers “surviving” five days the way a large portion of the world’s population still lives (without indoor plumbing) deserves more coverage than the murder of four Americans in Benghazi will forever remain a mystery. But it was a slow news day, so who really cares?
2. Which journalists deserve big kisses for Valentine’s Day?
Can I say none? Because I don’t think any do. OK, Sharyl Attkisson from CBS News deserves a big, wet kiss for being the only journalist who is asking (and not getting answers to) tough questions on the issues of Fast and Furious and Benghazi, but she’s the only one.
