      I concur with Hannah regarding the disappointment in dealing with the under-reported topics. Reporters fail in their jobs for a number of reasons. 1) Lack of life experience leads to inability to relate to issues. 2) News companies hire young reporters because they are cheap. 3) Too few reporters are available to cover the stories -they have to stab and go to the next one. 4) Corporate greed and entertainment value have diluted true news reporting.
      As for stories going uncovered – I am distressed over the lack of coverage to the NC water contamination by Duke Energy. They had a major coal ash spill in their Asheville plant this past summer and paid Governor McCrory $1 million, and no charges were filed. Now, another spill occurred affecting the Dan River in both NC and Virginia, and the news coverage is minimal. Internet searches reveal there is activity regarding the politics of the spill, but there is no real investigation nor accountability. McCrory worked for Duke Energy for nearly 30 years, and Art Pope is iMcCrory's puppeteer. The corruption of the republican controlled senate and congress are infuriating. Duke Energy's infrastructure of containment ponds is crumbling, and the initial building plans were shoddy. Where is the investigative reporting?

      Adding to Hannah's comments: As CNN was carrying Reliable Sources the CBC broadcast a piece on the end of a 3 month occupation of the Kyiv city hall in Ukraine by protesters. And another on trapped miners in South Africa. These stories (and others) are on the CNN website but have not not been broadcast. Where is the focus on international news?

      CNN- I am absolutely disappointed in what I have been watching the past hour. You spent, roughly, the first 45 minutes of Reliable Sources reporting on over-covered issues. When you finally get to a " underreported" segment ( the water quality in West Virgina) you focus, not on the NEW chemical spill that has occurred a week ago, but on what should be the normal practice of a Journalist's research.
      Again, CNN, please know this, I have been COMPLETELY disapointed in this past hour I have spent on your News station.

      Here, some real, relevant, and new information:

      Daniel Flynn made a huge deal saying that the reason Michael Sam is in the news is because he is Gay, not because he is a great player. Well guess what? Like the host, he completely missed the point – it isn't because he is Gay, it is because he ANNOUNCED AND CAME OUT that he is Gay. This oversight ignores Michael's difficult choice of being "outed" vs. coming out, and stupidly presumes that all the other NFL players are straight if they haven't said they are Gay. Let's focus on the ball, guys, and it isn't publicity at play here, it is justice and everyone's right to be who they are without being punished by media or others who may be different (most of the most publicly disgusting and morally vacuous people I have ever seen are not Gay. Anybody remember Anthony Weiner? Or take nearly any non-gay congressperson who has been involved in a sex scandal – you will observe that about the same percentage as the general population, nine in ten are straight).
