Aren’t reporters supposed to post articles and/or opinion-pieces that include, you know, real reporting? That is, as opposed to what you might find on my site, which may include some research, but which may not, depending on my mood and the time I have available to do the research.
Well, Dotty Lynch of CBS News seems to have decided that, “if I can’t beat the blogs, I might as well join them,” with her opinion piece entitled “Rove-Gannon Connection?” You see, even the title sounds like something you would see on any given blog.
And the question mark at the end of the title? Apparently, Ms. Lynch has no idea if this is true, but is hoping against hope and is willing to spend some time throwing out a few possible theories of how these two are connected, so that she can then turn around and make this moralistic statement:
Planting or even just sanctioning a political operative in the WH press room is a dangerous precedent and Karl Rove’s hope to become a respected policymaker will be hampered if the dirty tricks from his political past are more apparent than his desire to spread liberty around the globe.
Does this woman sound “blogger-esque” or what?!
Either CBS News, which seems to be in the process of tearing itself to pieces, is trying out this blogging thing just for kicks, or they are in worse shape than I thought.
