How about the stories we get right here on LUG central? Leica's about to
fold, the M7 is about here, a 21-35 2.8 R zoom is coming, Ted Grant is
older than Mathusela...

People are people, which leads to: journalists are people. TV IS worse than
print, but I'm finding that the younger journalists get, the less
disciplined they seem to be. :-)  

But things go in waves. Things will tighten up as people respond negatively
to journalists not doing their jobs well. I see a trend in journalism
criticism recently to hold the "big dog's" feet to the fire more.

(From an old grump who had a run-in with a teeny-bopper journalist today).
