How is it irresponsible, amateur, and sensationalist to report what someone said verbatim on video in front of the entire country?

Probably because it wasn't "verbatim".



Stopping the subsidy to PBS does not equal Romney shutting it down, or us losing Radiohead videos.

And for the record, I think it was a stupid thing for Romney to say. Most of what he says is stupid.

Nobody in the thread said he would shut it down. The only term used in that chain of comments was "cut."

Replace shutting down with "cutting", then. I will edit my post to reflect this. Point still stands.

Ending subsidies = cutting. Your point's still wrong.

Edit: actually it doesn't, ignore this post.

In any case, Romney wants to eliminate government support for PBS, so saying PBS may not exist after that isn't "irresponsible" since as I understand it that's how PBS continues to operate.

I also object to call this "irresponsible" but turn around and act like cutting subsidies to PBS will have any effect at all on the 5 trillion the kid I quoted is so upset about.

Actually, the point of the post was that Jason didn't report what Romney said "verbatim" in a video as you implied, unless the meaning of the word has changed. That remains unchanged regardless of the argument over cutting, shutting down.

Jason didn't "report" at all so maybe you should take your semantic nitpicking to the guy who used that term in the first place

Edit: My foot must taste great today. I was on mobile and this whole thing showed up as a forum post, not a news article, which is also why when that kid said "this reporting" I thought he meant the general discussion of Romney's comments in news media. My bad.
