    plus if you are hired to do Research you best have the Skill to do proper and accurate research.

    (My Daughter worked for Deutsche Bank in risk management she researched the risk and potential of investments, if you screwed up you could cost the bank millions)

    No you said companies hire employees to do research... (no they hire them to do the job they were hired to do) unless it is research your statement is incorrect.

    If you are hired to roof, they are not hiring you to research roofing, they are hiring you to roof, and do it with great skill.

    Nope, not what I posted.

    I know - but your giving them the skills to do research in the future. And let's face it - all jobs do require being good at that skill.

    I read it as not needing the skill at the job they were hired.

    I misunderstood thinking they were hired for their ablity to research not the "Skill at the job for which they were hired"

    I get your point now .. and agree.

I know Liberty Media and Sinclair are buying up everything.

The major three networks CBS, NBC and ABC were neutral but even that ended for many when Stephanopoulous was hired. Its just really ramping up now because every blogger and website now is out there for everybody from the far right to the far left. People watch what they want to hear.
    Trump reinforces to his supporters practically every day that any info on him that he doesn't like is FAKE NEWS.
    Frankly, that bashing our Constitution/the 1st amendment is enough for me to believe that Trump should be thrown out of office.

    You know, I find liberals can Quote Rush word for word, they do so all the time. I don't listen to Rush because IMO he is too liberal.

    You're reinforcing the OP's research. Cons are too polarised to listen to "liberals"
