R-E-S-P-E-C-T, Freedom of the Press

Aretha Franklin demands it in her now famous anthem.The founding fathers of our wonderful country, thought enough of the press to name them in the FIRST amendment. The Press clearly earned it during this period. Now I am not so sure.

Oh how I wish the MSM held themselves with the same regard. The Anna Nicole Smith horror story is the lead story or worst breaking news. MSNBC is covering the story live. This does not warrant a scroll across the bottom of the TV screen. The MSM has the nerve to challenge the ethics of bloggers. Please.

Maybe i'm missing something. The horrendous conditions that our returning soldiers land in at Walter Reed Hospital is discussed AFTER the latest news of Ms. Smith's rotting corpse. The coverage dishonors our troops, the viewing public and the now dead Anna Nicole. I guess if all of the soldiers had blonde hair and big tits, their coverage would warrant the lead position.

The media has made this story a story. Disgraceful.
