Do You Have Dan Rather in a Can?
Howie Kurtz breaks a lot of news in today's column, from how journalists use cell phones to report stories to how the White House is sometimes less than forthcoming about its foreign policy decisions. But he totally buried the lead! According to Dan Rather, missing the handover ceremony would be OK, but he "would have been disappointed 'if I had been locked in that room and found out someone else had broken the story.'" Ack! Is that a concern over there? What kind of Abu Ghraib press pool is this administration running?
OK, sure, we'd like to see Anderson Cooper in leather and chains, but that's a whole different thing.
