Yesterday, the White House announced that C-Span founder Brian Lamb is being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. What an excellent pick!
With Lamb's leadership, the nation's cable companies joined together to start C-Span at no cost to the taxpayers. This has enabled millions of Americans to have a window into the daily operations of the U.S. Congress and other parts of the government and political world.
Brian Lamb and C-Span have strengthened democracy in America.
