  4. Steve Daniels:

    The viewers had an affinity for him, and he was a very trustworthy journalist— he covered politics and covered the world, and brought those stories home to North Carolina in a meaningful way that made the stories make sense, and put it in context for the viewers at home.

  5. Gretchen Whitmer:

    They weren’t planning to ransom me, they weren’t going to keep me, they were planning to assassinate me. And the plot has been covered as a kidnapping plot, there was one person who showed up on, you know, on a Supreme Court justice’s lawn and turned himself in, and it was covered as an assassination attempt. And so I think that when you look at the facts of both of those, and you see how differently they’re covered, I do, you know, have concern about the language that we use, especially when women are a target as opposed to men.
