The previous reviewer missed this episode while actually watching it. the Apollo 13 story is well known enough that making a show about the way it was saved was redundant. so instead they focused on the press and how news coverage morphed from the Edward R Murrow/Walter Cronkite in-depth coverage to the tabloid news such as Fox News and MSNBC now practice. It is a brilliant episode that follows the brash new reporter covering the "people" and the fading away of the old reporter who reported the story. Anyone interested in news coverage should watch this episode. In my opinion it might have been the best. "filler added to make ten lines" what a stupid rule
