My apologies to Lou Dobbs of CNN for not listing him as a welcome exception to my rant (below) about national broadcast news. Lou Dobbs' objective, wise and mature reporting of the news, his sense of concern and values, and especially his pioneering campaign about the massive outsourcing of American technical jobs to third world countries make him head and shoulders above any other broadcast journalist today.
Mr. Dobbs invariably displays good judgment and good taste. His frank opinions and dogged persistence have singlehandedly caused the Bush administration and corporate executives to be accountable for outsourcing, executive malfeisance, tax cuts for only the wealthiest and many more despicable business actions.
Lou Dobbs for Time's Man of the Year! Or at least Broadcaster of the Year.
