1. Hmm. Wonder what he was depressed about.

ď While a reporter and morning anchor at ABC affiliate KNXV-TV in Phoenix, Sign broke the story of the June 2016 secret tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Sign wrote a book about his experience called Secret on the Tarmac.Ē

From the link.

2. I never heard of him

I did a search. He was good looking at least to me. I donít fault him for doing a story. That was his job. Plus 5 years later? Doubt that was even remotely the reason. People have problems and donít know how to handle them. Like is tough.

3. I think one can glean a few things about the man from just this one book, actually.

The reviews of it regard it as poorly-written tripe that got him his fifteen minutes of fame on Fox and Friends and precious little else. He wasnít merely doing his job as a journalist, he was trying to capitalize on the right-wing media feeding frenzy. The whackos on the right will, of course, add his name to the list of people they hold the Clintons responsible for whacking, but nothing can be done about that.

Life is tough and people often make it tougher by making poor decisions.
