Then Long Beach Independent/Press-Telegram City Reporter DAVID SHAW was a good friend quickly made during the 1960's upon my return from the 1st Major Battles of the Vietnam War as depicted in MEL GIBSON's "WE WERE SOLDIERS" Motion Picture.
I had gone over to Vietnam as a moderate in 1965 who did not believe in the Death Penalty, open-minded to experience all that was coming my way. I came back a conservative realist who deeply believed in accountabilillty for hateful behaviors and thus the Death Penalty.
DAVID SHAW seem most interested in what I had to share about the misreporting of the Vietnam War by CBS News' WALTER CRONKITE & DAN RATHER and we would argue about that Media Coverage and the correctness of the War for hours. Finally, going our own ways at the end of the 1960's just for the peace of it. He then went on to become the Medial Critic at the Los Angeles Times. Still blinded to the liberal bias of that Media.
A good hearted man, A danger to Media CLARITY.

MARK KRISKI said it best today during the KTLA-TV Channel 5 'Morning News' reporting of the passing of DAVID SHAW:
"In this Era of immediate 24-7 Internet NEWS-availibilty, Print NEWS-papers like the Los Angeles Times should really be called OLD-NEWS-papers"
...a gutsy call coming from a Los Angeles KTLA-TV Station Media Employee, a TV Station owned by the same Chicago Tribune OLD-NEWS-paper that now owns the Los Angeles Times OLD-NEWS-paper.
Bonne Chance, MARK.
DAVID SHAW: DAN RATHER's work 'Sloppy, Slipshod' not LIBERAL..?
Dead or Alive, its still a Demwit vote. If we can ever fix dead voters we'll see elections start running 70%-30% Republican.
