  1. Moving deck chairs on the Titanic. Until the CBS News braintrust gets rid of little Jeffy Glor (even more boring and clueless than Pelly), CBS will founder. Watch Decades TV’s DAILY REVIEW, when they show old clips of Cronkite, Rather, Mort DEan, Harry Smith, some of the REAL journalists (and adults) who held that axchor desk. It’s the easy way to see why CBS just doesn’t matter any more. Anthony Mason should have been given that anchor chair. It would have preserved the CBS reputation for quality.
