Editorial • Just When You Thought We Were Done with Judy Woodruff….
…she’s back on PBS, in what threatens to be a two-year series in which she spouts her trite, tired vision of who “we” are, and where “we” seem to be headed as a nation.
We are in the grips of an entrenched gerontocracy, bogged down by the likes of a doddering, backward-looking Joe Biden, a paranoid-delusional Donald Trump, and the various Mitch McConnells and Nancy Pelosis who have long-since outlived any purpose they might once have served. Having a sad relic like Judy Woodruff back on public television only compounds the problem.
Please: Let PBS know that we not only want, but desperately need, fresh talent, fresh viewpoints, and a positive new direction — preferably from those still at a safe distance from death’s door.
Thanks for your service, old-timers, but please have the common decency to move on now, so that we can move ahead.
