272. Help me understand!
First, let me preface this by saying that I think that Bev is the first true heroine of our new century.

But I have a problem and I'm not being facetious- I really am this naive. This lockdown business, with outraged reporters who are suppressing stories they really want to tell- who specifically is doing the locking down and how is it being enforced? Surely someone like Ted Koppel or the people at 60 minutes wouldn't let an administration get away with such a scandal. These are people who dig to get at truths and don't get intimidated. And what about Bob Woodward?

What I'm really asking is, and I know this sounds like a stupid question, but who is doing the locking down and why is the entire media complicit in such a scheme? These are people who go into war zones to get a story. They don't scare easy. (and yes, I realize they've totally failed us through the first 4 Bush years, but this sounds like some sort of conscious unanimous contract or scheme and that's a whole other ball of wax, or isn't it?). Help! I'm confused!
