    I like Norah
    She stood out on the morning show with her questions...etc.
    Smart and inquisitive woman.
    Has the background too to get it done.

    I’m happy to be a journalist, and to try and just do my job honestly, informing people about what’s happened, trying to highlight important issues, help other people if I/we can, and just to continue keeping a watchful eye on The Man and The System. Please give a thumbs-up if you value honest, decent journalists and a free press and media anywhere... :-)

    At 6:15 is why I’ve watched Colbert for the last three years everyday. Brilliant. He’s too fast on his feet. Thank you Colbert

    CBS news have my respect when they didn't hide their in-house scandals. Charlie Rose and Less Moonves were covered vigorously. Other news stations would have tried to cover up the scandals.

    Norah is so right, without journalism, we would be told perpetual lies by just about every racist Repub in America, including trump. They are a brave group of people, kudos to you all for giving us the truth. 💙

    Winning elections, with racism and misogyny, since 2016.

    "How to talk to practically anybody" by Barbara Walters! I read that so many times as a teen. It is dated but a lot of it still holds up!

    Norah made quite an impression on her evening slot this week. Definitely not as boring as Scott Pelley was.

    My television is paranoid: it always feels like it's being watched.

    It is too late. The beast that Donald Trump woke up in the core of those that hate-from-fear has become bigger than he can control. He should had been stopped many months ago. Be aware, the worst is quite probably yet to come.

    There's a reason why our Constitution calls out the necessity of only one profession: the press.
    Their job is to hold those in power accountable and to combat the abuse of power.
    No wonder t'rump hates them. They're constantly calling him out on his lies.
    And working overtime at that! 😃😄

    'Quality journalism is important to an informed electorate.'
    Only if the electorates read something beyond The National Enquirer.
