Default CNN spanked on Jeopardy yet again

Soledad O'Brien loses on Jeopardy

First Wolf Blitzer finishes in the negatives against Andy Richter and Dana Delany. Now Soledad O'Brien loses to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and David St. Hubbins of Spinal Tap.

I like this part - "They are reporters, not trivia experts. And the buzzer is complicated."

Not too complicated for a Desperate Housewife or Lenny from "Laverne & Shirley", though.

Still, you can't expect them to be trivia experts. They spend their time reporting on current events, politics, sports, science and the arts, and the relevant history and geography of those stories. How could any person with an average memory possibly become a trivia expert with that poverty of stimulus? Now, sinking a game-winner from the paint with two seconds left - that will make you a trivia expert.

I bet the blonde bubbleheads at Faux News would have done much worse. But Keith Olbermann would have killed with his cow college credentials.

Stupid is as stupid does.

Have you actually seen journalism students? They are probably the biggest bunch of drunks and retards on any campus.

Close. But I think they are actually required to read stuff from time to time.

We need to stop calling them "Journalists".

The Brits have a better name. They call them "News Readers", a much more correct description.
