A little addendum to my rant about the press just below, from Chris Cilizza at the Washington Post today:
"Gulf oil spill fades as an issue just as oil stops gushing into Gulf"
Funny that, as long as the Republicans could beat Obama up about this disaster that was totally caused by Republican deregulation and indifference to corporate malfeasance, it was the number one story anywhere. Within one day of the situation seeming to be under control, it "fades as an issue."
Apparently, as with the Wall Street reform legislation, things are only issues if they can be used to make Democrats look bad. Otherwise, who cares, right?
