Believe it or not, Judy Woodruff of PBS is being criticized for being hard on Jimmy Carter in a recent interview. I’ve read the transcript and darned if I see all that hardness. See if you can find any. I think what’s got the PBS viewers in a tizzy is that it wasn’t the typical fawning interview PBS usually conducts with libs.

But what really made me want to comment on this was a memory it brought back. I was at the University of Georgia in 1971 and was watching the Atlanta ABC affiliate on Halloween night (why I remember this, I don’t know). The top story was Judy Woodruff walking around with a cameraman and a microphone following little 5-year-old Amy Carter as she trick or treated in the neighborhood near the Governor’s Mansion.

Come to think of it, after getting that assignment maybe she did have something against Carter.
