"We have what I call the Super Soaker culture, where Chuck Todd and the boys go and play Super Soaker in Joe Biden's lawn; they hang out at the correspondents' dinner and chuckle at jokes about drone strikes.

Not to say that there aren't fantastic journalists who work for corporate media outlets. Charlie Savage at The New York Times, fantastic reporter. Michelle Shephard at The Toronto Star. Dana Priest, Jane Mayer. The problem is that they are few and far between, and most of the chatter on cable news comes from the buddies of the powerful." close
