And they did it a hellva lot better job of it then the channels on TV masquerading as news these days with their blathering overpaid performers. Make no mistake about it. That's exactly what these news anchors and guests are--performers having little-to-nothing to do with responsible journalism. They spend 10% of their time reporting the news. Then go on to talk about what they just reported spending 90% of the remaining time explaining their version of what we just heard and what we should think. Yeah like we're some sort of a bunch of idiots incapable of formulating an opinion without their expertise.
The following shows were designed for thinking people to ponder. Unlike the cable news channels who assume their viewers are uninformed idiots who need explaining. That's why I so sincerely miss these and other shows like them. They're practically timeless. Most of the issues they addressed are still the ones we face today.
The Newsroom- Will McAvoy's Apology
The West Wing- President Jed Bartlet Scenes
