I worked as a newspaper reporter back in the 70's. When I started I couldn't imagine doing anything else. When I finally resigned for good after only about four years, I couldn't imagine ever doing it again. I got to see how some regional network reporters did their job when one (whose name you would recognize immediately from PBS today) cruised into the last day of a two-week federal civil trial, looked around and then left for the nearest network affiliate to do her story. She asked a local newspaper reporter to call and tell her what happened. And then she did her authoritative report to a national audience. And the writer assigned to cover the Y2K story admitted in print that reporters are not trained in anything except how to read documents and interview people; no intelligence, no other education required. It's no wonder they make their own worlds up out of their imaginations.
