Umm, R.D. and Chet actually do some real, genuine reporting.  Granted, they 
have little helpers and interns, but I know people who work with them and 
they actually get out and cover stories, believe it or don't.  Not everyone 
is just a reader... News readers are only as credible as the people who 
write their stuff, of course.  But some of the old-time journalists in this 
town do still like to see things for themselves-- people are shocked to 
find that Jack Williams and Liz Walker and even Natalie Jacobsen have been 
known to leave the studio and talk to the people they are reporting
