Trust is the coin of the realm in journalism, and in an age of ideological media, those who practice real journalism must always remember that.
Bob also gave thanks in his final shot, to and with the staff of the show. That was a reminder that almost all good journalism is a product of collaboration, which should improve the product partly by keeping out unfairness and bias.
It was also a stroke of humility, which Bob has always displayed, as journalists should. These are lessons from a leader.
