    Lisa, how easy do you feel it would be for Sulzberger to become a Republican?  I don't think their values can be sold out but they do bargain for things enhancing their self esteem.  It's like provenance.  The fact that Sulzberger was asked, skyrockets his self esteem and he wants more Atlas boosters.

    In 2000, I heard Dana Milbank say, on Hardball, that the press didn't really like Al Gore because Gore thinks he's better than they are.  He added, on the other hand, they like George W. Bush because he acts like them while he most probably IS better than members of the press, whatever "better" means.

    It's not money, it's knowing how to get to people and enabling their egos to soar or maybe it just is blackmail.  I have no doubts that blackmail is a regular form of legal tender in Washington, DC.
