Aside from the inanity they dish out on a daily basis, I think it is the basic idiocy they perpetuate that is the most maddening:
MATTHEWS: Ron Brownstein, you‘re an expert, and you don‘t work for “The New Yorker,” you work for “The Atlantic.” Let me ask you this question. We have 12 percent of this country who believe that Barack Obama took the oath of office as U.S. senator on the Quran. We‘ve got 19 percent of other Americans, adding up to 31 percent, who really have doubts about his religious background, who do think he might be a Muslim. This picture with him and the turban on, what‘s it going to do?
It is just painful. When Americans tune in to our media every night, they run the real risk of becoming dumber.
