  1. No news is good news.
    I always check Fox and Drudge first thing to see if anything is happening.
    So far, nothing is.
    Just wildfires, that’s bad enough.
    And a man’s daughter is missing. I pray they will find her, but I fear it also. Things like that seldom turn out good.
    I told you a couple of times that a couple in H’ville went hiking in the Smokies.
    They were missing for a weekend and people searched for them.
    They were discovered in Asheville. Living it up.
    Everyone’s emotions turned from fear to anger in an instant.

  2. Woodward’s book may be worth checking out.

    He’s old-school — thorough, fair and dispassionate in his reporting, not blinded and trying to just “push” an agenda on one side or the other.

    How refreshing that would seem nowadays.


  3. @11:40 Nope. But he might get a few more votes than Ricky’s dog. Right now I can’t even imagine the circus that 2020 will be.


  4. PS. I miss real journalism too. It was more comfortable when I at least believed people were attempting to think and write intelligently and in an unbiased fashion.


  5. Yes, too many journalists don’t even try anymore — and the landscape has become dominated by the far left and far right partisan sites. Hopeless to sift much trust-worthy truth out of those territories, typically.

    Objectivity, as much as it could be achieved, was a huge emphasis in training journalists in my college years.

    2020 might be unbearable to watch.
