So says shiny Texan anchoraurus Dan Rather:
«"It starts with a feeling of patriotism within oneself. It carries through with a certain knowledge that the country as a whole - and for all the right reasons - felt and continues to feel this surge of patriotism within themselves. And one finds oneself saying: 'I know the right question, but you know what? This is not exactly the right time to ask it.'"»
I think that the only thing that one can rely on the US news-o-tainment media to do these days is to do spend a great deal of time screwing up, and then spend a near-eternity tut-tutting about how they did wrong. I think the old days of journalists wearing a card in their hatband that says "PRESS" should be brought up to date with baseball caps that say "ASK ME ABOUT MY SHAME SPIRAL" on them.
