Less informed than we'd like to admit
Charles Levinson is in Lebanon, trying to figure out what's going on there, and specifically, what Hezbollah is doing. Levinson's reports the way democracies should insist that their reporters do: he's educated and knows the relevant languages, he's on the ground trying to figure out for himself what the story is, and he tells us facts without insisting he knows the full story or all the answers. Woefully rare, this method.
