Reporters Without Shame
Otherwise known as the White House Press Corps. NPR's Scott Horsley may have achieved greatness today in that category this evening. He typically covers matters like Obama's health care proposals or his pick for the Supreme Court. These stories allow Horsley to swoon under a pretense of objective reporting. But today he covered a trip by local kids to the White House garden "planted" by Michelle Obama. Amidst Iranian elections, North Korean militancy, an imploding nation to our south, a continued world-wide recession, it's good to know Scott Horsley, crack reporter for NPR, could uncover such an important story to tell his listeners. Of course, this is exactly the kind of story your typical NPR listener craves - I shudder imagining all those skinny, grey-haired Presbyterian ladies squirming in their seats over this latest bit of Obamagasm. Go on - have a listen - it's not to be believed (or rather, it's all too believable).
