It’s BRACKET Time! But, you might want to laminate this one, because – unlike the NCAA tournament that kicks off tomorrow – this one will take a little longer to play out than the month-long tournament. Forty-three months longer, in fact.
Yes, it’s the Election 2016 Presidential Bracket, with the promise of bragging rights, victory dances and the ever-enviable “I toldya so” to the most adept political prognosticator.

Facebook question from James Mills:
If you could interview 3 people from history, who would it be? Why?
- Amelia Earhart because as a young girl I found her story so fascinating and I want to know for sure what happened to her, where she crashed and how it happened.
- Martin Luther King because I want to ask him what he thinks of 2013.
- And Albert Einstein because I'd like to see if I could carry on a conversation with him.
Facebook question from Ryan Himes:
What was your first job in the industry and what education/skills did you acquire before hand for your resume?
I was a newsroom assistant at a local Washington, DC FM radio station. As part of the job, I did the morning rounds of police and fireman calls to see what had happened overnight. Since the Washington area has multiple jurisdictions, this was my first opportunity to learn the art of developing a source, which quite honestly comes down to trust, yours for your sources and your sources for you. It was also when I first realized that perhaps the most important news tip you can get from a source is what they won’t say. The hole in information is what you take to the next source.
