David Ignatius: Quack Crack Reporter

Damn, you have to be fast in the blogosphere when opinion column intos are supremely vulnerable to rewrites:

There is a temptation that seeps into the souls of even the most righteous politicians journalists and leads them to bend the rules, and eventually the truth, to suit the political needs of the moment. That arrogance of power is on display with the Bush administration American mainstream media.
I would have used reporter instead of journalist but these folks will claim the hat you didn't suggest, no matter which you choose. Besides, they have so blurred the difference, it doesn't matter any more. Anyway, hat's off to you Bluto!

Update: Scrappleface mocks the White House Press Club Corps mercilessly:

"In an ironic turnabout for the former “darling of the news media,” Mr. Cheney finds himself at odds with the very journalists who helped him craft his public persona as an affable and wise man of the people."
