Seems, according to the above link, Charlie is "livid" over Diane getting his old job. I'm sure her ratings will be far superior to his. Plus the fact she's not a white, fat, pasty ole guy. Maybe it's me, and I do know she's more or less a "news reader" but it still put a huge smile on my face to know Charlie is not happy. Hope that's true.
13. Yeah, a NIXON aide, but she's one of the few (BROCK) who have redeemed themselves

Whether Mike NICHOLS brought her around, she must have had the material for starters for a caring persona.
Otoh, Tweety has about TEN YEARS of shafting us to make up for. His tamped down version of himself after his Shrub worship petered out has NOT redeemed him.
As for GIBSON, I think I saw somewhere he's pals with Brit HUME, and it shows. I still remember an occasion he was badgering President CLINTON, until the prez got his dander up and used a Southern regionalism, "O.K., if you want me to be HONEST with you..."
GIBSON pounced, either ignorant of the connotation or deliberately, "What had you been BEFORE?!1"
"Honest" as a Southernism connotes being BLUNT and RUDE to the point of hurting-your-feelings.

Are you sure you aren't thinking of Chris Wallace? He, and Charlie and Brit all look alike.
I'm thinking of Charlie Charles GIBSON being pals with Brit-TrophyWife-HUME. HUME was at ABC and used to snipe at Peter JENNINGS's editorial choices, which HUME considered to be Liberal.
Are you meaning that WALLACE and GIBSON are the pals?
In my anecdote it was GIBSON vs CLINTON, although there are thousands of OTHER anecdotes with OTHER media monkeys badgering CLINTON.
As for Baby WALLACE, when he jumped to Faux, I had sort of thought of him as vaguely Lib or moderate, more from the reputation of 60 Minutes and Daddy's supposed osmosis there, but have finally concluded that the WALLACEs are just JERKS.
