David Carr / New York Times:

Brian Stelter / New York Times:
The News Cycle, From Fireworks to Fizzle  —  I DON'T remember how old I was when I first climbed up to the roof of my family's home in suburban Maryland.  Eleven, maybe?  Twelve?  But I do remember what I saw up there.  It was the night of the Fourth of July, and it was turning dark enough for the fireworks.
