Today's Must-Read: Thank the Press

As usual, Digby has it:

Just a little reminder:

[CBS Chairman]Leslie Moonves can appreciate a Donald Trump candidacy.

"It may not be good for America, but it's damn good for CBS," he said of the presidential race.

Moonves called the campaign for president a "circus" full of "bomb throwing," and he hopes it continues.

"Most of the ads are not about issues. They're sort of like the debates," he said.

"Man, who would have expected the ride we're all having right now? ... The money's rolling in and this is fun," he said.

"I've never seen anything like this, and this going to be a very good year for us. Sorry. It's a terrible thing to say. But, bring it on, Donald. Keep going," said Moonves.

There's more, in the same vein, from other network execs.

These are the people who are deciding what information we get.
