Why the press should be worried but isn't
I caught a few snippets of Rumsfeld in Iraq today. Lots of press sources have mentioned Rumsfeld's line "I’ve stopped reading newspapers.” Far fewer of them have mentioned the thunderous applause the troops the gave him. Compare 345 Google News hits for "I’ve stopped reading newspapers" to a scant eight for "I’ve stopped reading newspapers" + applause.

This is a problem for the press, though I haven't heard a single member of the press even recognize it.
Agree, disagree, have more information on the topic? Please, feel free to leave a comment. No profanity!
