'People' Furnishes the Pictures, Milbank Furnishes the War
Sun-Times Washington correspondent (and semi-official Obama-chronicler) Lynn Sweet gives us a fascinating, totally unsurpsising glimpse at just how the Washington Post's Washington Sketch column gets put together each week:
Obama's Monday included a Capitol press conference with 10 other senators to talk about their plans to toughen limp Senate ethics rules. Before the presser started, Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank offered me one of the two copies of People he was toting, trying to bait me to ask Obama to react in front of everyone and provide grist for his column.
Come on, Dana, how would you like it people kept dragging out embarrassing old pictures of you all the time?
