28. I think you are being unnecessarily harsh.
I think mantis is concerned and wants some objective input. We've seen reporters rolling over before. For example, WaPo and NYTimes backing off their allegations that the terror threat (coincidentally held 2 days after the DNC) was politically motivated.

The day after those articles appeared the reporters were backtracking and busy kissing Rove's butt. So with his history, I have no doubt he is behind the attempted muzzling of CBS. It's his modus operandi. So let's hope CBS doesn't back down, and in the meantime Kerry and surrogates stay on point and continue to attack Bush on his many failures over the past 4 years.
