    Yeah, I think that was pretty much Jack saying it was much ado about nothing.

    that was a pretty stupid thing to say.

    Meh, I look at it as nothing more but the continuing mounting evidence that there is simply not enough going on in the world to merit all of this 24 hour cable news coverage.

    Agree totally.

    It's also further evidence that ole grummpy Jack takes himself faaaaaar to serriously. It's not your job to decide for us what we should and shouldn't be interested in Jackster.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Certainly not if all the 24-hour networks are going to do is put people behind a desk. Now, if they wanted to pay for the army of competent reporters you'd need to do 24-hour news they'd find plenty of things to cover, but right now it's easier to obsess on a half dozen items each day because you don't have to invest in bodies to do the work.

    Right. Should amend my statement to read that there's not enough going on in the world that is considered palateable to the average American viewer.

    Reading the NY Times, or the CS Monitor, or the Financial Times, for a couple of days reveals exactly how much is not filtering down to most American news sources.

    I don't think he's saying anything about what we should be interested in. I personally think he's fed up himself of covering a news story of a woman who's done nothing to merit her fame.

    BTW, Cafferty strikes me as the only newsperson who's shown an ounce of sense in covering this story. IMO, he deserves a Peabody Award for showing some on-air disgust about the attention this has gotten.

    Now if only somebody in the press would show the good sense to march out of a White House press briefing.

    I enjoy watching David Gregory's White House press briefing reports. He's not shy about drilling Tony Snow or Bush when it's warranted--which is pretty much every day.

    But think about whole ridiculous the setup is. They're gathering to be disinformed by the minister of propaganda. I don't care who the party in charge is, no valuable information has ever come from the White House Press Secretary.

    I can understand gathering to hear from officials in charge of making decisions, but one of the great sins of the American press is allowing the administration to hide behind a spin monkey. It's a complete perversion of open government and the notion of a free press.

    Ahem. Please put away all flash cameras and political discussion inside the thread.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
