The New York Times and Los Angeles Times, Journalism, And The Global War on Terror

If you don't read anything else about the recent publication of classified material, read this essay at Winds of Change. The whole piece is a must-read, and I cannot do justice to it with an excerpt. This one, however, may whet your appetite:

I think, in simple terms, that they have forgotten that they are citizens, and that they have an obligation to the polity that goes beyond writing the good story. I don't think they are alone; I think that many people and institutions in the country today have forgotten they are citizens, whether they are poor residents of New Orleans defrauding FEMA or corporate chieftains who are maximizing their bonuses at the expense of a healthy economy.

But that's another blog post.

Please read it, and encourage others to do so.

Excellent post - I forgot about that Jennings/Wallace interview - how sick some of us have become in our hatred of "love of country."
