Well put

Howard Fineman, Newsweek’s chief political correspondent, said Monday night in the first program of a Drew University lecture series, that Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward had become a "court stenographer" for the Bush administration.

Woodward has gone from being a respected icon of investigative journalism to being a neocon groupie. He shuld retire before events destroy his tattered reputation further. Both the NY Times and the WaPo have been badly damaged by their unquestioning cheerleading for the neocon wars and their participation in the lies, sleaze, and coverups that accompanied them. That’s what happens when things get run by an elite few interested primarily in furthering their own aims.
