As someone who taught journalism for years, I can't stand it!
Good evening, My name is Wolf. Blitzer and I always have awkward. Pauses in my sentences.

Blitzer is totally unwatchable. CNN should send that monotone, stoic, and humorless dinosaur to the grazing fields.

I wonder if Wolf used to stutter or have some other speech impediment when he was young?
Does anyone have dirt/general gossip on Wolf? I sometimes wonder what he is like outside of CNN as that is the only place I associate him with. It's like he doesn't exist outside of the studio.

I blame him and him alone for everything now being “Breaking News.”

He's a huge Cher fan, so that's one thing we have in common, anyway.

We need a Legrand Wolf parody thread, now.

I cannot bear him. It's the reason I no longer watch CNN because he's ALWAYS on.

Is it breaking news or Wolf Blitzer “breaking news”?

Also, I will agree with everything you say during the course of our interview.

He’s also dumb as dirt. Did breathtakingly poorly on Jeopardy.

Uh Yeah, it’s like, you know, really annoying. Um, uh, you know.

I hate Wolf - I don't understand how he has a job. He's not very intelligent and let's Republicans spew all their lies without any interruption or fact checking.
He needs to go - he's awful.

He made his name during Desert Storm announcing all the scud missiles coming from Iraq. Dunce. I am so surprised that he has lasted this long.
|by Anonymous||reply 21||11/19/2020|
it's because he's never learned how to breathe

Is he the one who said, "here come the fireworks" when Iraq was being bombed, R21?

Blitzer is 112 years old and should have been forcibly retired ages ago.
These Boomers keep hanging on and on and on, they could turn into zombies and would still refuse to retire. Andrea Mitchell is another one.

He was trying to get this woman to thank God after she survived horrible devastation. She was an atheist.
|by Anonymous||reply 25||11/19/2020|
Ha! I was just about to post that same video, R25! Great minds...
But that was the moment he was dead to me. Such an entirely inappropriate and stupid thing to ask someone. I think he’s a moron.

It's physically-painful listening to her struggle through a sentence/question. Seriously.

Can you imagine what Andrea Mitchell must look like up close in person, without the Lucy Mame lens and a ton of makeup? I imagine she's horrifying.

That reminds me of Arthur Kent, the "Scud Stud", who is now 66.

R21, my mom developed a crush on Wolf during the Gulf War coverage, no joke.

He must have it in his contract that the top of every hour with him on the air is “Breaking News” even if there is nothing breaking about it.
|by Anonymous||reply 34||Last Saturday at 3:04 PM|
I have NEVER understood how he's managed to stay on the air on CNN all these years. He's terrible on television. I assume he's blackmailing someone.
The Breaking News banner is a marketing gimmick, pure and simple. It's totally irresponsible. They're just trying to grab viewers by making them think something new has happened when it hasn't.
I wish somebody would buy CNN and restore some integrity over there. Everything is driven by ratings for them.

It was reported this week that CNN President Jeff Zucker is expected to leave next year. I think he made CNN too headline driven. He also coddled Trump in the beginning of his first campaign. I hope if he leaves it will bring about some positive changes.

Wolf was a reporter for the Jerusalem Post. That's many years back now.
He is often soft in interviewing Republicans.
Recently, he tried to be.confrontational with Nancy Pelosi over the stimulus stalemate. She mopped the floor with him.

Call him "Leslie". It's his real name.
|by Anonymous||reply 38||Last Saturday at 5:22 PM|
R37, also a spokesman for AIPAC. Norman Finkelstein took that asshole to the woodshed in a debate they had a long time ago. Wolf has no business ever commenting on any story involving the Mideast conflict and neither does Jake Tapper.
