When journalism was king

Among the still-proliferating tributes to David Halberstam, here's something totally different: Doonesbury has posted a series of strips from 1979, in which Halberstam interviews Rick Redfern about his membership in the fraternity of 'giants of journalism'.
It brings back memories of the heady days of post-Watergate hubris, when journalism was where everyone wanted to be. Remember? Thank goodness we got over that, but sad to think how much things have turned around. Isn't there a middle ground?
