I had complained last week, perhaps unfairly, that the journalists weren't doing their jobs. Without real, hard facts, some of their reporting is little better than social media posts. B Robb is a real pro. If you're not reading his stuff, you're missing out on the best analysis there is. I really enjoy Chris Forsberg and Tom Westerholm, too.
