Being sprayed by Rahm’s water gun, a reporter’s breathless tale

Why are some of America’s biggest journalists attending a beach party with senior members of the Obama administration, including Joe Biden, then telling the world how much they love the down-time?

Not hard to see why and Salon’s Glenn Greenwald is right:

…All of this just helpfully reveals what our nation’s leading “journalists” really are:… … desperate worshipers of political power who are far more eager to be part of it and to serve it than to act as adversarial checks against it — and who, in fact, are Royal Court Spokespeople regardless of which monarch is ruling. … That’s why they’re invited into the heart of Versailles to frolic with the King’s most trusted aides:… … it’s their reward for loyal service as Court courtiers.

This happened during the Bush years and now again during the “liberal” Obama years. Little changes.

And journalists wonder why the general public treat most of them with contempt.
