Quote of the Day

"The press canít win. When The Times publishes a piece like its domestic spying exposť, the paper is criticized by the left for sitting on the piece for over a year, and excoriated by the right for being unpatriotic in a time of war. The polarization of American politics has grown so severe that partisan critics now blame the media for failing to bring down their political enemies. Unless bloggers on both sides of the aisle understand that itís not the job of the press to do their political bidding, the media better get used to being a punching bag."
-Gabriel Sherman, in a New York Observer book review. Yes, it's hard out there for a journalist. Posted by Stephen Silver at June 1, 2006 12:37 AM
