Why I still don't like the media, part 2

I can't do any more justice to the whole NYT/bank monitoring fiasco than Glenn Greenwald does, so I won't even try. It is extremely long, but an excellent read.

As with the previous post, however, I would focus on the section where Glenn addresses the fact that the television media is complicit in giving this story legs by continually pushing it. You would think that true reporters would start siding with their print brethren and say that this whole charge is out of bounds. But that would mean that we'd have to have actual reporters on TV, and most all of them are talking heads nowadays, so that's hopeless.
