64. Hey people, life is not a movie!

And neither should journalism be like a movie or TV show. There is no villain role, nor hero anti-hero roles; what we have here is just a bunch of powerful people being idiots. That's all.

Of course the media has to frame events into narratives using well known tropes; they are framing this into some kind of fatal attraction set in the spook world. Would make a good movie.

Color me in the minority here, but I see nothing that makes this an important story. The media just salivating on it because of sex, like they always do.

Call me if something important turns up.
