Sam Freed (Executive Editor James C. Whiting III)

An old school journalist with an old-boy network (he worked in Philadelphia with University of Maryland journalism dean Gene Robbins), the smooth Whiting hasn't let his silver hair slow his ambition. He's determined to snag a Pulitzer for The Baltimore Sun. He likes order, and prefers a series that tugs at the heartstrings to a story bogged down with a lot of social context.
