I’ve been saying for ages now that newspapers and other media organizations should not participate in the White House Correspondents Association dinners, the Gridiron wingding or any other Inside the Beltway circle jerk. Reporters have been fired for socializing with sources in the past so I’ve never understood why no one seemed to think that laughing at politicians’ lame ass jokes while they’re conducting an illegal, immoral war was way too damn cozy. You want to suck up to these criminals? No problem. You’re fired. Go hobnob.
The Grey Lady has come out of her coma at long last, it seems. You thought you were reading some random blog by a fat, middle-aged guy, didn’t you? Ha! I’m actually the most influential man in America today.
Stop laughing. You’re harshing my buzz, Dude. The point is that I said it and they did it. Cause and effect. Simple.
