Rove criticizes journos for the "corrosive role" of their coverage

What exactly is Rove's problem with journos?
"It's odd to me that most of these critics are journalists and columnists," he said. "Perhaps they don't like sharing the field of play. Perhaps they want to draw attention away from the corrosive role their coverage has played focusing attention on process and not substance."
Ah! He doesn't like it when journalists focus on the process of illegal spying programs or the process of holding suspects in secret CIA prisons abroad. Instead he wants them to focus on the substance of Dear Leader's favorite talking point: Fight them there so we can ignore people here. Bad, bad journos. Go to your room right now.
