The Downward Spiral
What better example of the decline of American journalism then the strange trip of Bob Woodward. From crusading journalist who is unafraid to expose those in power, to administration lap-dog tenaciously protecting the same, could there be a better symbol of how deeply in bed the Washington press corps has gotten with their subjects? Bob should go back and read those recently released Nixon transcripts. Something has to shock him into realizing how deeply the rot has gone.
