Easterbrook's Bad News

Those darn elites. TNR blogger and professional optimist Gregg Easterbrook tells Howie Kurtz "that establishment journalists are obsessed with bad news because the elites they serve benefit from fear-mongering." One elite the establishment journalists are not serving? The lowly President of the United States, whose announcement of new environmental policy was given "short shrift": "The New York Times ("E.P.A. Drafts New Rules for Emissions From Power Plants") put the story on Page A24; The Washington Post ("EPA Aims to Change Pollution Rules") on Page A2." Says Easterbrook: "The proper placement for this story was Page 1 -- where the anti-Bush environmental stories always run -- and the proper headline was, BUSH ORDERS DRAMATIC POLLUTION REDUCTION." In order to prove our own independence from fear-mongering elites, Wonkette will strive to cover today's stories with this in mind. A quick glance at some headlines and their proper spin:
