Here it is July 25 and we are hearing about Michael Cohen's tape - a minor diversion compared to what Rachael was talking about. Has her report just evaporated as yesterday's news?

Rachel is a great talker, but she is paid to draw high viewership, nothing more.

I will never forget when that Malaysian airliner disappeared, and for a week the news shows ran practically nothing else at all - Rachel, along with most other TV talking heads, was on air hour after hour after mindless hour, talking nonstop about the fact that there was absolutely nothing to report. And all the while looking straight into the camera in that earnest, heartfelt way of hers, just as she always does.

That opened my eyes to the meaning of the word shill - a word that applies to most TV journalists of all political persuasions in this oh-so-enlightened new world.
