Watching Donald Trump pretend to run for president while he gets free advertising for his television career reminds me of News Radio when Jimmy James ran for president in order to meet women:

The press goes along with this cry for attention from a lonely man. What a country!

My respect for the press skyrockets every day. Only my fear of what our country would be like without a free press--however flawed it is--leaves me a defender of the whole even as I shudder at the press corps we have. But we have what we have and other than closing journalism schools, I'm not sure how we improve the profession.
