On a Live Journal I read, a woman complained that headline news this last week has been all about drawing women as crazy and as bimbos, but it is very hard to find any news about how the Scooter Libby trial is going.
Actually, unless you read web logs, finding Scooter's trial is almost impossible. More and more it looks like the major news outlets are leaving the real reporting to the web logs they so despise, and putting on a freak show for ratings goodness. Mothers giving guns to children. Men putting children out to freeze. Ambulances dumping hospital patients on skid row. Reading the news is like wading in sewage.
And the politics of pretend scandals! Someone listed Obama/madrassa, Pelosi/large jets, Hillary/evil men and Edwards/mouthy blogers as all the recent attempts to show Democrats in a bad light, with nary a Republican smear. Of course, when Republicans do fall, the scandals are likely to be real and ugly -- accosting young boys or child pornography -- so maybe it is just as well we haven't heard about any recent activity.
