-THE CUNNING REALIST-: No Longer Ready For His Closeup: "A few nights ago, I had dinner with a friend of mine who used to be a reporter at a big city daily and has since moved on to another line of work. He said he recently visited his former colleagues at the paper and that it was like returning to the salt mines: malaise and despair was the mood there, with everyone looking for a way out."
But of course. How can you have any self-respect when you know that you are a liar, and the public knows you are a liar, and you know that the public knows you are a liar. What is needed is a complete overhaul of America's newspapers, with new reporters, new editors, and new papers. The economics will make it happen.
