“Some say,” Some Said

The Death of the Media

The WaPo, which is the more-or-less official paper on the politics of the US, has a post up from Chris Cillizza that cites unattributed sources to explain to us that there is nothing that can be done about the feral children in the nation’s capitol voting to not allow a thumbs-up or down on the nomination of a fellow Republican for the Cabinet position of the Secretary of Defense.

But the best part? The WaPo claims that no one outside of the beltway knows who Hagel is, nor cares, and because no one knows who he is (or cares) that this is seen as safe intransigence for the GOP to have a tantrum.

So… isn’t that actually an indictment that the courtesan press has not done its job, you know, informing us rubes and turnip farmers in the hinterlands what our public servants have done? It’s pretty funny when someone like Chris Cilliza tells you that he didn’t do his own job. I’d save this column for his annual review.
