    If this doesn't show you how screwed up this country is in understanding how disfunctional the news media is, nothing will:

    Translation: They didn't do what Obama wanted.

    What's really amazing is reading some of the NYTimes' reader comments...

    The press doesn't do what Obama would like, so they're criticized by the liberal press watchers and the NY Times readers. :faint:

    Perhaps if Obama had given a few press conferences dealing with the Fiscal Cliff and Benghazi the press corps could have focused on his gun-control rant.

    Why aren't these people complaining about that?

    Morons.

    Reminds me of the reporters who were caught on tape a couple months ago coordinating an attack on Romney before a press conference. They're supposed to be making every politician's life a nightmare by competing against each other for scoops on stories.

    The news says a record number of reporters are being held in prisons around the world.

    I say, it's a start.
