    She was a no B S news analyst. We need more like her.

    Because she was a political commentator.

    I know I'm not real smart, but this almost makes sense to me.

    Didn't like her comments, but wouldn't have wished cancer on her. But compared to what we have passing as "journalists" on TV now, she was pretty sane.

    I've read her columns and I have nothing but total contempt for the woman. Too bad her husband didn't go with her.

    She is survived by her husband of 53 years, journalist, author and professor Steven V. Roberts, her children Lee Roberts and Rebecca Roberts, her grandchildren Regan, Hale and Cecilia Roberts and Claiborne, Jack and Roland Hartman, along with numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

    by today's standards, she' a right wing extremist. she had a family.

    We need fewer News "analysts" and more objective journalists. Most of her analysis was biased.

    More like an opinion loudmouth... she paved the way to what "journalists" have become today. She wrote this in 2016: "[Trump] is one of the least qualified candidates ever to make a serious run for the presidency," Roberts wrote late last month in a syndicated column with her husband, the journalist Steven Roberts. "If he is nominated by a major party — let alone elected — the reputation of the United States would suffer a devastating blow around the world." May she rest in peace, but please don't give us more like her.

    Most on the left need their facts to be analyzed by someone else first, before the individual leftie is able to perform the necessary mental gymnastics required to fit the analysis neatly into their leftist worldview.

    She was liberal-minded, but not the sort who hid behind half-truths and the omission of facts. I respected who she was, though I rarely agreed with her conclusions.

    Since I wanted one of the other Republican candidates to win , I feel free to ask wasn't there enough turmoil within the White House itself in his first 2 years as a trainee politician to justify doubts then ? Her parents were politicians , so she saw successful politics in a different light than the average journalist.

    While i can't dispute that there has been plenty of turmoil in the president's office since his election, I will dispute that it was mostly caused by him. There would have been MUCH less of a mess if the media had treated him more like they did the previous occupant there, who could do no wrong in their partisan eyes, as opposed to President Trump, who can seemingly do no right as far as they're concerned. In his case, it seems no stone is left unturned, and no negative rumor left unreported, confirmation prior to doing so be damned. Time and time again in the reporting on this administration, 'journalists' are proven to be little more than partisan hacks, jumping unapologetically to the next made-up scandal just as soon as the current one is debunked.

    Zero tears shed. She was in her era, what the activists posing as journalists are today. The standards have just shifted.

    It takes a massive ashole to take joy in the death of someone who stood by their principals even if one disagreed with them and an even bigger ashole to wish death upon innocent loved ones or relatives of which we know nothing about.
    Makes them less humane than the worst Liberal or Progressive

    I take no joy in her passing, but had absolutely no respect for her, or her father or mother.
