This article by Jeffrey Lord, "Media Malpractice: Tom Brokaw's World Implodes," is an absolute must read in my opinion. It is so well written, and so accurate, that I am in awe. The age of Old Media is passing before our eyes, and the internet is ascendant. The world will never be the same.
P.S. The article is long, but well worth your time.
P.P.S. For those whose interest was piqued by the relationships between Mary Meyer, JFK, the CIA, and the press, check out this article. I don't think you can make this stuff up; it's worthy of a spy novel. HT: Ashby Foote
