Ouch, times two........................

Graduating from college during the final days of Watergate, I (briefly) considered a career in the (at that time) honorable field of journalism.  Not that they ever belonged there, but the news (?) gathering folk seemed to have crashed and burned fallen off their pedestal.  For the inside scoop, you might consider reading this (ex)insider's tale.  Whatever else you might think, Sam Youngman can flat out write. Excerpt here:

" was harder to ignore the near criminal disconnect between Washington and the rest of the country, especially in an industry that has turned neighbors against each other while its instigators clock out and meet for a beer together, skilled actors who in many cases spend the day feigning hatred for each other on camera but are actually bound by their shared nihilism and reckless self-absorption. In Washington, a divided America is good for business."
