They don’t have our ethics, and so forth. There’s a deterioration,” she continued. 'Reporters laid down on the job in the run up to this [the Iraq] war.'
'I think they did a lousy job and we’re making for it now because the questions that should have been asked were not asked and because of 9/11 and the fear of being called unpatriotic, un-American and so forth. We let the country down,' Thomas added."

Yep.....it's OUR fault that the N&R is like it is.
I knew it all along!
