The Rebellion of the Talking Heads - Newscasters, sick of official lies and stonewalling, finally start snarling.

EverBabe - this story is EXACTLY what we were talking about today. The reporters, who like to at least have the appearance of impartiality, are so frustrated with the loss of life and back slapping by the officials that they are actually calling the politicians on their sh!t. Which is when journalists SHOULD be respected.

I'm curious about whether this will be the watershed event that will give journalists back their good name.

I've never really thought of the press being big fans of politicians, it's too much fun to bash them. =)

I do really wonder what's going to happen next election because of this, though - should be interesting.

Wow. The biggest thing that stands out about this is that the journalists are drilling the Democrats along with the Republicans. Yes, that's right, it ain't just one party or another in Washington thats getting to detached from the country, but all of em.

This is very encouraging to see a journalist actually drill a politician that wasn't politically motivated. I'm so used to seeing the Bush administration being drilled over Iraq by journalists, while they don't question Teddy Kennedy or Kerry about their role in voting for the war in the first place. Hopefully they'll keep it up and treat the WHOLE federal government as needing to be watched, cuz I gotta tell ya, most of the crap that rolls our way doesn't come from the Executive Branch.....
