Comments: There's a name for that.

Once again I find myself wondering why the journalists are the story.

I actually think it's fair for them to be the story. Not them covering themselves (i.e., looking up their own assholes) as much as bloggers and others keeping their feet to the fire by insisting that they actually cover the story, stop taking quotes out of context, stop creating controversy where none exists, and get up from their bended knees and actually critique the current Administration. Honestly, Bush has nothing but contempt for them, what merits their subservience? Cheney? Please.

So, Roger Clemens is coming back to baseball. That was a short retirement.

I think it's mostly because the US national baseball team didn't make the Olympic cut. If they had, Clemens would have been in Athens. As they didn't, he's still hankering to play and being in his hometown is something of a consolation (and more $$ of course).

Well, yes, you have a point.

It's just that I have the feeling that 'monitoring' the individual journalists is a lot slower than just bypassing the media and making the (real) story available elsewhere on-line.

That will do three things at once:
#1 Give us the information we want now, and not in some distant future.
#2 Show how the different news outlets are failing to provide full, unbiased coverage.
#3 Cut into their readership, which hits their bottom line, and gets their attention fast.
