On the arrival of a new political season now in full swing, it might be wise for the members of the Buffalo media to reflect on this video from 1960 and remind yourselves about the job you are supposed to be doing for our community.

When you continuously avoid the real issues facing residents of the city of Buffalo for crappy articles involving the color of the candidate’s skin and some old fat guy from Albany coming into endorse a black mayor, you belittle the profession you claim to love.

“It’s the responsibility of the reporter to get behind the facts and explain what they mean”.

Do you remember how to do that?

Let’s hope so
