This Sunday before Memorial Day was mostly a wasteland of third-tier clowns, political button men and defrocked moral crusading slot jockeys.
Nothing but Shelley's "lone and level sands" stretching far as the eye could see.
So while the network titans of shame and failure went fishin' and left the hard work of chewed over meaningless poll numbers and empty speculation to their JV squads, let me commend to you a down-the-dial option which you might not usually have noticed.
This Sunday, CNN's Reliable Sources dared to talked about race --
-- the decline of Limbaugh --
-- and the responsibility of journalists when it comes to the lunatic conspiracies that have gobbled up the collective brains of America's right wing --
-- in ways that no one else in the media is doing.
So good on you, Brian Stelter.
