He's painted himself into a corner where he stands pretty much alone. He, along with the alphabet networks need to do their jobs and only their jobs of reporting the news and, in Costas case, sports. Nothing more. News and sports has no room for political views of personal opinions. I thought he was more intelligent because of his issue of guns when you can basically make a weapon out of just about anything. So, are we to throw other things away because of the potential use as a weapon to kill? What would he do without a pen or pencil? Paper can cut so, do you discard that as well? I rate him a 9 out of a possible 10 on the idiot scale. Do the job you were hired to do or be dismissed for failure to do so.
