Media Quote of the Weekend

Glenn Greenwald while skewering Politico's Top Ten of 2008 list:
There's the central axiom driving coverage by our American media: the more significant a matter it is, the less attention it receives .... It's hard to know what's worse: journalists ... who know full well that their work is a frivolous and inane distraction yet continue to do it anyway, or ones ... who -- even in the face of all of this -- actually believe, or at least claim to believe, in the enduring, guffaw-provoking myth of the intrepid, adversarial journalist.
The criticism applies locally, too.
