Surely the folks at CNN — and perhaps Fox “News” and MSNBC — saw The Daily Show and The Colbert Report last night and cringed while watching questionable Flight 370 coverage ruthlessly mocked by Jon and Stephen because Christ, the past two weeks have just been an embarrassment to watch.

Swear to fucking God, CNN has had a reporter inside a flight simulator in Canada for the past FOUR DAYS covering the Flight 370 story. 
Today they are “flying” over the site where debris, possibly from the doomed plane, was found.  Because this is how you should cover this story: inside a Canadian flight simulator.
Even anchor Carol Costello must be doing a facepalm.

Ever get the feeling the New York Post is run by a bunch of giggling frat boys whose editor in chief is Jesus H. Christ himself?

Stan Brooks of 1010 WINS in New York City was the first radio reporter I ever worked with who was always, always a gentleman. When he filed a story you knew it was done by a tried and true journalist who understood Big Apple politics and power brokers like no other. Last week, Mayor Bloomberg named the radio room at City Hall after the veteran newsman, whose wife, Lynn, died from cancer — the wretched disease which would also take his life. 
The airwaves are lessened by your absence, Mr. Brooks. May your colleagues carry on your legacy; your audience will miss your reporting, and your voice.
And I will miss your good humor, your laugh, and your singularly New York kindness that helped a PR noob get his bearings straight.
Rest in peace, good sir.
