Quote1.png ...And the trouble with you "electronic journalists" is that you never get to cover any story for more than thirty seconds! Even newspaper writers these days don't do much more than rewrite releases they get from somebody's press secretary! When I was covering the Korean War, we had to fight for our stories! Once, when I flew out to a battlefield in an army medical helicopter, the pilot was hit by enemy shrapnel... It was a good thing I could fly one of those heaps, or another medic team would have been peeling us from the battleground! Why, if I were a TV-reporter I'd really show you how to cover a story!
