Who says there’s no civil discourse on TV news?
“PBS Newshour” commentators Mark Shields and David Brooks have proven there is and they’ve become the recipients of the nation’s first ever award for civility. The Allegheny College Prize for Civility in Public Life was presented to Shields and Brooks Tuesday at The National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
Shields and Brooks will talk about the award tonight on PBS Newshour. Presumably they each get their own plaque so they don’t have to fight over it.
