Scoobs is correct. If the press core is just repeating what the gubmint talking heads are telling them then what's the point? For too long, all and I mean all of the lamestream media will basically allow a politician to come on, give a verbal press release even if it has no basis in reality, and then move on to the next subject. This is why reporters and pundidiots are about as popular as meter maids and payday loan venders. Speaking as a lib, its high time my fellow lefties stop trusting the press to do the right thing as they're completely useless and too afraid of being accused of "bias".
