But it really wasn't necessary to watch the entire thing
In his lead-in, anchor Bob Sheiffer managed to sum up the day's events in three beautifully written sentences that made at least one veteran newsman sit up and take notice.
"Well, Rupert Murdoch called it the most humbling day of his life, and he said he was sorry but it wasn't his fault and he wasn't resigning. Then, someone hit him with a cream pie. That about summed up the Parliamentary hearing..."From Tallahassee, former Miami Herald staffer Marty Merzer wrote on his Facebook page: "You don't hear that kind of writing anywhere on TV anymore. And you rarely see it in print. A shame."
I agree Marty.
All you cub reporters out there, listen to the old guys...they know what they're talking about.
