During the run of the show, the reporters switched from using typewriters to VDTs (video display terminals). The brand name was taped over on all of the computers. See more »
Well, I haven't gotten the memo yet, but any way that we can be protected from the nuts who call the city room would be great.
That's not what the memo says. I asked you to be courteous to the nuts who call the city room.

This show started out with some fairly good episodes. But it quickly slid into series of boring episodes where the people who put this show together, including Edward Asner. Aired their politics, with thinly veiled episodes, where the watcher is lectured on evil war monger, or destroyers of the environment, some other cause. This wouldn't be so bad if they came even close to using factual information. A lot of the arguments they made on this show could not stand up to scrutiny. If your hearts bleeds for every loser you see, or find yourself going AWWWW! a lot during Ophra or Dr Phil, this is the show for you. Hated it when it was new, still hate it.
