Mansbridge was not a journalist, he was a voice with good hair who could sell the rot presented as reliable and informative when in fact he was a confirmed liar of the highest calibre and would repeat any crap no matter how ludacris or damaging. He has and had absoluely no conscience. Being already at the bottom you cannot go any further down. This is the state of what is called western TV journalism.
