After Brian Williams’ fall from grace, his former boss at NBC, Bob Wright, defended Williams by pointing to his favorable coverage of the military, saying: “He has been the strongest supporter of the military of any of the news players.

This is a failure of today’s journalism. This is the exact type of question they should be asking. If journalists are not asking these questions, who is?
If nobody is, then the elite are allowed to do as they please.
