News freedom advocates take the Karen Ryan route


Just skimming the latest in a long line (going back, at the very least, to Ken Auletta's New Yorker piece) of descripitions of, or polemics against, the Bush Administration's treatment of the media - this time, it's Lori Robertson in the AJR.

I'll return to the substance, perhaps - though there's nothing startlingly new so far. But the following leapt from the page (emphasis mine):
ASNE, the Radio-Television News Directors Association and a number of other journalism organizations are launching a nationwide "Sunshine Week," set for March 13. The Sunshine Week Web site (www.sunshineweek.org) will provide op-eds for use by the media, story ideas, video news packages and information for libraries, which will sponsor local FOI programs.

Jesus!

Media! Complain about USG spoonfeeding of prepackaged pablum - and use our prepackaged pablum to do it with!
