Jim Lehrer Has Claws?!? But He Seemed So Cuddly!

From the NYPost:

    PBS anchor Jim Lehrer takes a veiled shot at Katie Couric , Brian Williams and Charlie Gibson in his upcoming novel, “Eureka.” His main character, a scooter-riding insurance executive named Otis Halstead, laments about the evening news: “When there were Huntley-Brinkley and Walter Cronkite and Harry Reasoner and Eric Sevareid and John Chancellor, the reporting had seemed calm, straight, newsy, necessary to watch. Now it wasn’t any of those things . . . their newscasts [were] more like entertainment.” The change doesn’t work for him because audiences already have “plenty of other ways to be entertained. Such as the circus.”
