TV newsreaders Dan Rather and Tom Brokaw think that there’s too much coverage of President Reagan’s death and memorial in the news:
“Once the herd starts moving in one direction, it’s very hard to turn it, even slightly,” Rather said. “Nationally, the herd has grown tremendously.”
I’m not really sure which herd Rather is talking about. The fact remains, however, that while Dan would rather be out herding cattle five days a week, he’s on TV every single night. Perhaps Dan Rather and Tom Brokaw are getting too much coverage themselves. Let the herd be heard: there’s too much Rather and Brokaw.
