FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Former UN Ambassador, Congressman, Atlanta Mayor, Civil Rights Legend Andrew Young, on the Shallownewss of America’s Newspapers

Told by his godson that former President George W. Bush “reads the newspapers,” former UN Ambassador Andrew Young replied:

“What newspaper? There’s nobody who writes for newspapers that knows what they are writing anymore. Newspapers are the shallowest they have ever been in my lifetime. The writers are very doctrinaire. Have you seen the local newspaper lately?”

From Walk in My Shoes – Conversations Between a Civil Rights Legend and His Godson,” by Andrew Young and Kabir Sehgal (2010) at page 173.
