How Modern American Journalism Works
Let's see, here: Do a scathing and factually-sound series of newspaper reports on the CIA's crack cocaine connection, and not only will every major newspaper in the country falsely condemn you for things you didn't do, but you will be hounded to suicide while those who didn't stand by you get lucrative promotions. Lie like a rug on behalf of the Bush Junta? You get away with it until such time as they decide they need someone to take the fall for Plamegate, then you get to leave your job with a hefty undisclosed financial settlement. Yup, that's modern American journalism, all right.
