More Depressing News About the Media

This article indicates that the media has come to rely on political assassins for their news clips.  Saves money, destroys integrity.  Good times:
The incident does, however, illustrate one consequence of the collapse of professional journalism. Work formerly done by reporters and producers is now routinely performed by political operatives and amateur ideologues of one stripe or another, whose goal is not to educate the public but to win. This is a trend not likely to change.
