    If you can’t do the job, get off the bus.

    Precisely correct.

    Anyone interested in political journalism should read The Boys on the Bus by Tim Krause. He covered the journalists covering the 1972 campaign. Along with Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72, it explains the entire age of broadcast media political "journalism" ("pack" journalism, where promotional consensus is the product).

    You're either on the bus or off the bus. And the journalism business is fully on the bus. The bus they've thrown America and truth under.
