Lehrer’s Rules

I’m a little sad that Jim Lehrer retired  from the News Hour earlier this month. Dry, but fair and balanced. If there was a news story I wanted to be actually informed about, his was the show I’d watch.

About 3:45 in the clip, he introduces his guidelines to journalism. Like a lot of guidelines, these can be transferred to other aspects of life, which is why I included the clip here. Be fair, be decent, assume the best, know the difference between opinion and fact then promote them accurately.
