Many of us have grown weary of the partisan hyperbole and tone of television news reporting. At the risk of dating myself, I can remember a time when CBS Evening News anchor Walter Cronkite was declared the most trusted person in America.
The media circus began immediately after Sam's declaration, and who knows how long it will last? In the meanwhile, send in the clowns. Or have they already arrived?
