MSM No Longer the Washington Generals?

I'm getting the impression recently that the MSM has decided to actually step up and not be the Washington Generals to the BushCo Globetrotters. They used to able to pull off easy layups of any lameass excuse every time they were exposed as total failures but this time feels a little different, if only a little.

However the "Nobody Could Have Possibly Imagined (insert latest catastrophe)" seems to actually getting old with people. It's almost as if it's actually dawning on these dimwits that BushCo is really as bad as their results would indicate. But that's assuming you think with your own mind, not the Rush hive mind or the corporate zombie lickspittle minds of the MSM androids.

Maybe I should start a free t-shirt offer to the first person to predict the number of days from now that we're back to usual fare of celebrity obsession, missing blonde girl, chat room predator threat stuff. How long before the MSM totally forget that the next catastrophe will be just as bad if not worse because they won't give it any coverage Sorry, it's just not as lucrative as their usual conjured up melodramatic garbage.

At least there a few in the print media who know whats going on:

At a fundamental level, I'd argue, our current leaders just aren't serious about some of the essential functions of government. They like waging war, but they don't like providing security, rescuing those in need or spending on preventive measures. And they never, ever ask for shared sacrifice.
Yesterday Mr. Bush made an utterly fantastic claim: that nobody expected the breach of the levees. In fact, there had been repeated warnings about exactly that risk.
So America, once famous for its can-do attitude, now has a can't-do government that makes excuses instead of doing its job. And while it makes those excuses, Americans are dying.
Well said.
