    Thank you to all the dedicated reporters at CNN. On the whole, you do a great job. But right now, you and all the other networks are failing us.

    Do your job. Investigate the black box of rating agencies - S&P, Moody's and Fitch - the unknown and virtually anonymous people who manage, lead, these orgs. that bilked the American and global public out of billions by giving AAA credit ratings to junk securities in the 2008 melt-down. WHo are they?? Talk about the wolf guarding the hen house. Who are these people? Your job is to find this out. How dare they make billions in the melt-down and now try to down-grade the US credit rating!!!! Totally outrageous. Where is the muck-raking media in this??? Get going. This is your job in our society. Are you just too busy telling us what the useless Kardashian nitwits are doing and going to dinner in NYC's fancy restaurants?. Shame on you. DO YOUR JOB. Help our the economy and YOUR country that have made your existence and fat salaries possible. If you don’t, I’m sure another network will step up to the plate.

    I was wondering what you thought of this idea, make it mandatory to take drug tests in order to stay on gov. assistance. If people fail then benefits should go down until they get clean or try other avenues. It isn't right for addicts to sell my money for half price. The money saved should be used to help get us out of these troubled times.
