Interesting (and scary) article on the Bush administation and the press

There's Signal in That Noise: The White House, the Reality Principle and the Press

Not engaging with opponents' arguments, not permitting discordant voices a hearing, not giving facts on the ground their proper weight, not admitting mistakes-- all are of a piece with not letting the "liberal media" cloud your thinking. This is the Bush way. And disengaging from the press has been a striking innovation of this White House. It's time to connect these dots.

I won't begin to try to summarize the very legnthy article, but it's very well worth the read - among the things it dicusses is the mea culpa that some news agencies are doing (or not doing and why) over their support for the war. Interesting stuff...
