53. What do you not understand about a reporter's work?
Ideally, they ask tough questions. Ideally, they take deceptive subjects to task.

I realize that Grace isn't a DU favorite, but if the situation were different...if it was a DU darling grilling a reticent crooked CEO who later committed suicide, 90% of DU would hail the reporter and claim that the suicide was proof of guilt.


Unless one is prepared to apply equal standards to buth friend and foe, one has no credibility.
