I knew this was bound to happen: An irate journalism
professor calling me a disgrace to my profession.

Since my response is not polite, I won't use this
guy's name. But I will tell you he teaches at an Ivy
League school.

Now, let me quote:

"Mr. Cavuto, please remember you are a journalist.
You're supposed to be impartial. Your obvious support
of U.S. and coalition troops and your rah-rah
patriotism is an insult to hard-working reporters
everywhere. You have no right having a show and even
less right calling yourself a journalist."

Well, professor, get over it.

You might have a problem thanking troops defending
your right to be the obnoxious, pontificating jerk
that you are, but I don't.

You might have reservations about calling this country
great, but I don't.

And you might have doubts about showing your
partiality to the flag, but I don't.

There's nothing wrong with taking sides here,
professor. But there's everything wrong with you not
even making the distinction. I can love my country and
my job at the same time. It is possible, you know.

You see no difference between a government that
oppresses people and one that does not, but I do.

You see no difference between soldiers who use women
and children as shields, but I do.

And you see no difference between forces trying to
liberate a country and those keeping it in the Stone
Age, but I do.

I'm not sure what runs through your veins, professor,
but something tells me it's ice. Too cold to
appreciate the rights you take for granted. And colder
still to acknowledge the men and women fighting for
your right to be the callous elitist you are.

So am I slanted and biased? You damn well bet,

I'm more in favor of a system that let's me say what
I'm saying here than one that'd kill me for doing the
same thing over there.

You have the right to be the self-absorbed,
condescending imbecile you apparently are and I have
the right to tell you that. You didn't give me that
right, professor. My country did.

You say I wear my biases on my sleeve. Well, better
that than pretend you have none, but show them clearly
in your work.

You're a lie, a fraud and an ingrate. Too clueless to
appreciate the country that gives you the right to be
the Ivy League intellectual Lilliputian you are. And
too selfish to be grateful that in this country, even
your type can find work.

as he so eloquently put it "SHUT THE FUK UP!" i swear even i will side with the reporter and i dont think he could have done a better job of putting that professor in place. He used words way too nice to discribe this guy but then again thats why hes a journalist. Good job! Proffesor (0) Reporter (1)
