  •  Classic fable: boy who cried wolf (5+ / 0-)

    I'm not saying any of these so-called scandals are real, though I've got some concern over the AP subpoena, but I have been thinking of the old boy who cried wolf story this week, in which a bored shepherd boy screams 'wolf" to get the villagers to come keep him company, but does it so often that when there is a real wolf no one comes.  

    I wonder if there are folks who feel burned on the birth certificate brouhaha, or other utterly ridiculous stuff and have now written off the whole scandal machine.  Coudln't happen to a better group of worlf-criers.

    •  Convern over AP? (0+ / 0-)

      AP is nothing more but a big corporate TMZ. Stories about an actress becoming a bikini model, or them covering a stupid film festival shows that. AP is not real journalism, so they should NO Tgget the same protections as reals journalists (Though, they can be very hard to find in this country, as they are all paid by huge corporations looking to create a new story to get more people to buy their nonsense.)
