Hmmm....This must explain why the N&R is like it is

The Grande Dummy......ummmm, Dame of the Washington press corpse herself, Helen Thomas, explains it all:

"'What I really worry about is that I think the bloggers and everyone, everyone with a laptop thinks they’re journalists,' Thomas said. 'And, they certainly don’t have our standards. 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."

Michelle Malkin adds:

"So, not only is their incompetence our fault. Their cowardice is our fault, too!"'s OUR fault that the N&R is like it is.

I knew it all along!


  1. Apparently Old Helen is still tasting sour grapes after Gore and Kerry lost.
    I guess she's miffed that the liberal media couldn't defeat President Bush, the will of the people, and the 35+ coalition nations that thought it WAS imperative we force a regime change in Iraq. Among those calling for just that were Bill Clinton in the 1990's. I guess she forgot. Senility's a bitch, ain't it?

  2. Yep,

    Everytime she soils herself they have to clear the press room so an aide with a can of Glade and a Homlite Yard Blower can freshen the area.
