Well, those are at least a few encouraging signs but as you
suggest, much more is needed before the presentations become
fair and balanced. Don't expect much from A&E though. I have
worked with them in the past and they have produced (or aired)
some of the worst schlock of all. What the major networks do is
potentially far more important.
