  •  The AP scandal is straightforward, and wrong (7+ / 0-)

    the question of the general relationship between the government and the press is much more complex, with ill-doing on both sides. Nothing there that excuses this kind of bad behavior on the part of the Administration, I'm not saying that. But the MSM needs to look in the mirror too. It's no use them pretending they're Ed Murrow, or even Walter Cronkite.

    "When people spin this in partisan terms to obfuscate the truth, it does a real disservice to normal people not in the big club in DC. Many of them will be hurting...That is why I write."--priceman
