I can think of no better symbol of how low our national politics have sunk than the current structure of convention coverage. We have gone from Walter Cronkite, Eric Severeid, Huntley/Brinkley, Frank McGee and Roger Mudd, to:
Bill Mahr, Trevor Noah, John Oliver, Seth Myers and Stephen Colbert.
I have nothing aginst these guys, who are all very talented and entertaining. But the personnel fits the product… a joke.
