I just noticed Ed Schultz's biography was strangely short compared to the others.

I don't watch the news, so I can't say.

I think OP needs to define "news reporter." By my count, only Cooper and Stossel ever even pretended to the profession of journalism and would at best represent weak exemplars of the final generation of journalists. Hell, Wolf Blitzer and Bret Hume are total sellouts but they at least apprenticed in the school of honest sourcing, inverted pyramid, WWWWH, etc. No Glen Greenwald? No Bob Woodward? Sebatian Junger? O' Reilly is to factual reporting what bin Laden was to diplomacy. Piers Morgan is about as close to being a professional reporter as the Unibomber.
