C-SPAN's Brian Lamb to Get Medal of Freedom

Betsy Newmark points to the story.

If there was ever a man in Modern America who has done more to shed light upon the workings of Congress, Brian Lamb is the man.

C-SPAN may be a political junkies haven, but when you think about all the other goverment programming on cable, i.e. local government coverage on cable, think about 20 years ago and the impact of putting Congress on TV.

The one drawback to C-SPAN has been the grandstanding nature of Congress. There used to be two types of Congressmen, the show horse and the work horse. Now all we have are show horses. Not much work is actually being done.
