Letter to the editor:

CBS anchor lacks objective reporting

Not long ago, I felt that CBS had solid journalistic integrity, but not anymore.

With nightly news anchor Scott Pelley pounding the airways with, “It’s the worst economic recovery we’ve ever seen,” my belief in his objective reporting is over.

Clearly Pelley can’t believe that, can he? It’s my belief that CBS has capitulated to big political money.

The absurdity of this statement speaks for itself.

From now on, I’ll get my nightly news elsewhere. Simply take a look at other modern times, the Great Depression era and even the Carter/Reagan era.

There is a reason we call our economic condition The Great Recession, but the worst economic recovery ever, really? My parents, born in 1914 and 1916, would have found this statement laughable.
