It's a bit late in the game, but some media folks appear to be catching on:
For the starkest comparison, I urge any of you who haven't already done so to read last month's report, commissioned by CPJ and written by Len Downie, former editor of theWashington Post. It lays out in chilling detail how an administration that took office promising to be the most transparent in history instead has carried out the most intrusive surveillance of reporters ever attempted.
As he notes, it's not only the writers; photographers are increasingly banned and instead handed images vetted by the Spite House. "Just print these, along with the press release. Now sit down and shut up."
Increasingly, some in the media ("Tingles" excepted, of course) seem to be losing patience with their messiah's approach. The halo's getting a bit tarnished. Barky's gonna need a taller bus; it's getting crowded under there.
