A great quote

I hope you don't mind an off-topic comment, but I think this is important: There is a great post on The Carpetbagger Report from a few days ago about the mainstream media's (specifically Time magazine's) ignoring the prosecutor purge scandal.

What explains the failure of the mainstream media to cover the purge scandal for so long, and so many other scandals? Do you think somebody just set up newspaper editors to cheat on their wives, and threatened to tell if the editors wouldn’t play ball when they come back some day and ask for something?

It wouldn’t be that hard to do, when you think about it. People wouldn’t talk about it.

My guess is its a combination of things. My guess is no one has to "cause" the scandals. I think they're already there and with all the internal spying you know they've been uncovered.

So there's the possibility of subtle and not so subtle blackmail.

But a larger cause in my mind is the media just doesn't want to report negatives about this government. If a Dem gets elected president in '08, watch them come on likes lions after carrion.
