I’m finally, gradually, catching up on all the Daily Show and Colbert Report trapped in my DVR, when I can wrestle a half-hour or so from writing. I’m glad I didn’t just delete without watching, because Sir Harold Evans asked a damned good question on the Colbert Report while discussing the need for editors: “Well, it’s simply like Rush Limbaugh is telling you about global warming. Don’t you want somebody to print the truth alongside all the bullshit?”
I’d love nothing better!
If only we had an editor like him at the helm of every paper today, we’d probably not be measuring the newspaper industry for a coffin. We’d certainly have less unchallenged bullshit floating about.
