Chuck Roberts Says Sorry

I think this is great. The media often screws up (I'm not talking about Faux News) but ultimately we need them. It's important we keep them accountable and also appreciate it when they correct their mistakes, something Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity are unlikely to do.

It's easy to find reasons to hate the main stream media, always will be, but they serve an important function. We need to keep them honest but we should also stick up for them, demand more access to the levers of power, for example, more press conferences.

Check out Chuck Roberts apology here. This is a victory for all sides.
