Yes, thanks for that. I suspected there was some serious thought behind what they were doing, and those answers show it.

The scary part about all this is not that they're doing this, or even that they're right, but that so many people in this business don't realize that we need these people to help make the business better. There are a lot of us who would love to do this ourselves, refusing to do dog lick live shots or allow underinformed and biased reporters to mislead our viewers, if we didn't have a responsibility to our employers and our paychecks to do what we're told. These guys are really champions of our cause, and, if successful, will make our jobs a helluva lot better in the long run.

All they're really doing is holding up a mirror. Too bad the clowns in our biz don't like their reflection.
