To adequately cover values in the media the paper needs a tv critic, a movie
critic, music critic, theater critic, dance critic.... It seems odd to say
values in the media are important when the reporters who write about them have
been dismissed. Bringing back Jeff Vice, Scott Iwasaka and others would show
the paper was really serious, not just spouting PR blather. It's too late to get
Scott Pierce back, but Sharon Haddock does a good job with tv reporting and
could fill a spot that is desperately needed at the News.
