I think this is one of the best editorials Paul Krugman has ever written. It's insightful, honest, and exactly what needs to be done. Every journalist in America should put that editorial above his/her desk and look at it before submitting any articles about next year's election. Also, I was just reading the latest issue of Newsweek, which I try not to do, but it had Jon Stewart on the cover. He had a great quote in there, which i'm too lazy to look up the exact wording, but it was something to the effect of when reporters follow Bush around it is like a bunch of 8yr olds playing soccer...they just bunch around the ball and eventually it pops out and someone yells "Ball!" and they all run after it. I think that's right on, but probably not specific to Bush, more like the media in general. The article also said that The Daily Show will be airing live from the floor of the Democratic Convention, which should be a lot of fun to watch.
