    The biggest difference between Miller and Cooper, beyond info Miller likely back-fed to Rove or Libby, is the degree of grandstanding involved.

    And yes, Matt Cooper did a fair share of that with his crocodile tears earlier this week.

    That's the problem when Big Media takes the cliche about The Fourth Estate way too seriously and in the wrong direction, viewing itself as an unelected fourth branch of government rather than an "afflict the comforted" adversary.

    Maybe if we ran newspaper and magazine stories without bylines and TV interviews without reporters' faces for one year, some of this would change.
