Growing up in Canada, were you influenced by reporters like Knowlton Nash and Barbara Frum?
Very good, yes and growing up with a different kind of journalism. My sister is also a journalist. She has worked for all the Canadian networks and there is a bigger focus on international news and national news. Whereas I felt like coming here, and I think there is good and bad to all the different styles – in fact it is not good and bad, it is what you like more. I really like how in the US there is a focus on what is going on in your backyard. There are so many different stations and so many different stations at the local level it really kind of gives everyone a chance to have their say. So in Canada, there were way fewer stations, but that has changed now because there are more networks and more stations. But, it was just a focus. I did enjoy knowing what was going on around the international community and how Canada played a role in the way the rest of the countries responded to different world conflicts or world affairs. You are very right when you say it is quite different. And
