New York Times opinion columnist Bill Keller talks with guest host David Folenflik about his exchange with Glenn Greenwald and his belief that journalists should keep their opinions out of their reporting.

    Sounds like non-sense. The point is... NSA, FBI, and crooked cops are all criminals who need to be exposed and imprisoned for gangstalking.

    It would serve the public if objective reporting came back. Just like the enrollment issues with the website. Not once has a journalist countered that in the current employer driven system a person has 2 weeks to choose a health plan. This includes them choosing a plan that may not have your doctor or medications covered, and if you miss that 2 week offering you lose your benefits for 1 year. Why has Congress never had an issue if the time for such a choice is needed?

    Wow, this is awful. Keller says he thinks adversarial journalism is about the unwarranted intrusion of opinion into reporting. Really? Take torture, which is a war crime. Fact: Water-boarding is torture, so its perpetrators are war criminals. Fact: The NYT never, during Keller's tenure, allowed use of the word torture for water-boarding of US prisoners. Now that is the intrusion of opinion into journalism, for which Keller should be eternally ashamed.

    How does Mr. Keller explain this one-sided group of guests who appeared on Face the Nation today? All of the guests shared the SAME opinion. Is this CBS being objective or impartial? Looks to me like CBS is framing the debate in a way that is not impartial. You know - what Mr. Keller accuses adversarial journalists of doing.
