Fuck you, FOX (CNN, and MSNBC)

I'm so glad the MSM decided to run the MANHUNT:GEORGIA story all day long. Also, I'm glad that some other dude killed 7 people AND himself in Milwaukee earlier, because God knows there wont be any news to report tomorrow. Meanwhile, Sunday's NYT has an amazing piece on the lines that stand between journalism and public relations:

Local affiliates are spared the expense of digging up original material. Public relations firms secure government contracts worth millions of dollars. The major networks, which help distribute the releases, collect fees from the government agencies that produce segments and the affiliates that show them. The administration, meanwhile, gets out an unfiltered message, delivered in the guise of traditional reporting.
