Retiring Fox News anchor Brit Hume bemoans how nasty politics has become. From today's LA Times:
"The whole general tone of politics in this country has turned so sour and so bitter and so partisan," he said, his gravelly baritone more morose than usual. "It makes news, but after a while, it's dispiriting to cover it."
Hume remains mum on what role FNC played in the "general tone of politics in this country" over the last ten years. And (naturally) the LA Times failed the raise the obvious point with him.
