CBS News Hasn't Changed Its Ways

As much as I like Bob Scheiffer, the editors and reporters of CBS News sing the same old cynical anti-government song. On tonight's show the lead story of Bush's first speech in a new series to try to pump up support for the war in Iraq was declared DOA. Barely one sentence on Bush's speech with a immediate declaration that it would fail in the face of a poll taken last week, before today's speech. Also intoned were today's death count in Iraq and the assertion of massively growing pessimism on the part of the American people. In other words, no reporting, all pontificating.
