For all of his flaws, he’s one of those rare people in the media who is able to step back and provide an appropriate perspective. Here, he goes after the Brian Williams story, making the point that it is important for news sources to maintain their credibility…but then why are they going after this trivial Williams story and completely ignoring the major media lies that led to war?
I’d like to see journalists apply this new-found probity to a few other of their fellows. Can we start with Wolf Blitzer? And every one of the Sunday morning pundit exhibitions?
