Sketchbook: By their fruits

Remember the days of Walter Cronkite, when he'd sign off with his tagline: "And that's the way it is"?

When I was in j-school, we were required to have multiple sources for each article, plus we needed to include opposing viewpoints if it was a controversial subject.

Nowadays, those lines are blurred. Anyone can claim to be a journalist. Opinion is represented as fact, and facts — like the points on Whose Line Is It Anyway? — really don't matter.

I'm feeling a little jaded at the moment. Maybe I'll put away my electronics, grab some Calvin and Hobbes and go sit in the garden for a while. See you tomorrow!
