I disagree with Oliver Willis that CNN should become a liberal Fox News. Nope, what we really need is a bad-ass, take-no-prisoners, Joe-Friday-just-the-facts-ma’am, let-the-chips-fall-where-they-may, old time Woodward-‘n-Bernstein, [insert clichÃ© here] real investigative journalism channel. And no John Stossel/Geraldo creeps, either; we want the real G’s: Sy Hersh, Kevin Sites, the entire production team of Frontline (tremendous, tough show), etc. It’s time for the comeback of hard-nosed, courageous journalism.
And I’ll bet it would get terrific ratings. Is there not enough scandal going on for everyone these days? The truth is the most provocative thing of all.
