Local anchorman Gary Warner retires. I always thought he was the most professional local news anchor. I like what he says about his job in the El Paso Times article:

"I like the feeling that, at the end of the day, I've given people information they should know in a professional manner," he said. "The copy was written well, and it had an impact on the viewers.

"It's like any other profession, such as a lawyer or doctor. If a doctor writes a wrong prescription, someone can get hurt. If we mess up and give the wrong information, there's the possibility that someone can get hurt."

Now there's an attitude I think some others in the news business need to adopt.
