Despicable

Listening to the White House press briefing, I'm once again filled with loathing for these so-called journalists. To me they sound and act more like the scribes and Pharisees in the New Testament, asking leading and accusatory questions and laying verbal traps. Half the questions today were about why Bush hasn't caved to the handful of retired generals calling for Rumsfeld's dismissal. I'd love to see a spokesman who would turn the questions aroung: "Why should the President listen to these few people when they're no longer involved in the defense department and ignore those who are?" or "Why are you so intent on creating news instead of reporting it?"

If the press is so free, how come they sound like a well-rehearesed chorus? And why are there so few among the mainstream media conservative or libertarian.

Yeah, I know this is trite and trampled ground, but it just doesn't change. I wish we could just skip forward to the time when nobody can make a living as a reporter and we can just see everything live and make our own conclusions.
