Absolutely, sweetie darling! There's no difference. Even though we look fabulous enough to pass for people half our ages, we're old enough to remember when there was a distinct line between journalism and entertainment. The talking heads we have today are nothing but info celebrities who get and keep their jobs by being as inoffensive and consumer friendly as possible. I have to believe that Edward R. Murrow, Mike Wallace, or Walter Cronkite would have downed a bottle of single malt Scotch and then slit their wrists in a warm bathtub rather than debase themselves like Anderson Cooper by hosting New Year's Eve from Times Square and playing childish grabass games with Kathy Griffin.
Cheers and air kisses!
Though there were criticisms even back then. Also a mention of Eric Sevareid should be mentioned in the "good old days" of reporters and "Murrow Boys." Though he also participated in commentary and even "fake news" (not really but would appear in TV movies playing a "real report"*)
He also though had a very interesting book as a youth about canoeing where he as a young man would periodically send letters back to the local paper on his journey. https://www.amazon.com/Canoeing-Cree-Anniversary-Eric-Sevareid/dp/0873515331/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1484197341&sr=8-1&keywords=canoeing++with+the+cree
"In 1930 two novice paddlers—Eric Sevareid and Walter C. Port—launched a secondhand 18-foot canvas canoe into the Minnesota River at Fort Snelling for an ambitious summer-long journey from Minneapolis to Hudson Bay. Without benefit of radio, motor, or good maps, the teenagers made their way over 2,250 miles of rivers, lakes, and difficult portages. Nearly four months later, after shooting hundreds of sets of rapids and surviving exceedingly bad conditions and even worse advice, the ragged, hungry adventurers arrived in York Factory on Hudson Bay—with winter freeze-up on their heels. First published in 1935, Canoeing with the Cree is Sevareid's classic account of this youthful odyssey."
