Recent news on Brian Williams and Jon Stewart is heartbreaking.

I've been loyal to NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams for many years and word came Tuesday night that he is suspended for six months. On top of that, Jon Stewart announced he will be leaving The Daily Show at some point this year. It's just a little too much at once. I'm having a hard time digesting the fact that my television viewing habits are going to change, drastically.
