No fact-check necessary here: if there’s anyone left in journalism who can be described as a “mild-mannered reporter,” it’s CBS News’ Mark Knoller. Today’s the 75th anniversary of the publication of Action Comics No. 1, and it’s been named “Superman Day” in Cleveland, Ohio, home of Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
A reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper who fights a never-ending battle for truth? That alone would qualify for hero status these days.
