Gentlemen, pay no attention to those rankings. They aren't the rankings you're looking for.
They were made by putting a list of names on the walls of a room and letting monkeys fling poo. Who ever got the most "hits" wins.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
