I've been watching this show since it debuted the other month, and I quickly felt a deep respect for it. I'm constantly disappointed by the evening news broadcasts, and prime-time news programs like Dateline or 20/20 seem overproduced and try too hard to be flashy. Rather's show is what I've wanted news to be--it's showing me what's really going on with brutal honesty, if that honesty is the harsh and sad footage of what's going on in New Orleans, or stating bluntly how involved the lobbyists are in the federal government. I thought I had some idea of these subjects earlier, but this show immersed me in them. The fact that it's in high definition adds realism to the images you're seeing, perhaps more believable. It's a high priority on my DVR's schedule.
