As a placeholder for thoughts about Donald Trump's unmasking of the mass media, as a reminder to think about the power of the microphone, as a summoning of the ghost of CBS News past, and as a bit of wordplay with Macbeth, here is a take on where we are now in our mediated, political tragedy:
As a creep in this petty race deforms today
In syllables of recorded airtime, 
We look to Murrow, and to Murrow, and to Murrow
