Jon Friedman to TV Journalists: Quit Your Banging

In his latest 43-second Media Web Minute, MarketWatch’s Jon Friedman bids farewell to retiring Fox Newsman Brit Hume, whom he describes as “one of the fairest minded people on the scene and above all, the most droll.”

Mr. Friedman continues, “Hume’s not a table pounder, he’s not a yeller, he’s not a preener or a screamer. He’s calm and measured. And above all, incisive.”

Presumably Mr. Hume’s incisiveness is maximally “above all” including his drollness which, as we’ve learned, is above his fairness.
