indeed. all of the schtick, chuck or any other broadcaster who subscribes to cliche, muddies the opportunity for differentiating perspectives of a given event. the possibilites for seeing some of the nuances, what sort of things a given viewer's attention is drawn to is greatly polluted by the commentator, and what they see. there are some whom i like, like armstrong. i like what they see. chuck only sees what he's paid or instructed to see.
