    Republican style shooting fish in a barrel lazyness... once on top, actual substantial work wanes... why put in the extra effort when everything is outsourced or co-opted and bought and silenced... the whole idea of "making it to the top" is to reap the entitlements of being there... having other people do the work or just be paid for doing very little, just being the face that mouths the words of others... and pretending to wear the hat of someone who used to originate them. All hat and no cattle reporting... an empty ranch style reporter...

    Paint by numbers business model applied to "news gathering"... The palette and design might as well be pre-chosen by the Cheney message committee. Hollowed out news organizations just flunkies passing along and barely massaging the premixed colorings. Hardly any retouching or blurring required... it's all in the no-shake and half bake recipe...

    All so easy to allow this to happen when "Access" becomes so important that impartiality can be sacrificed to maintain it. Eating McCain's barbecue... is symbolic of this... we are all just pals and get along so well, lalalalala

    All to insure getting the inside scoop on the talking points and tweaked info, each "news organ just like all the rest... like they were handling scripture... spouted and unchallenged and helpfully "interpreted" by the usual scripted pundit shills.
