U.S. "mainstream media" predictably swayed by distractions

"In the short term, it snuffs out President Obama's preferred message of the day -- pushed at a scheduled town hall today in New Mexico -- regarding credit card reform. Obama and/or White House press secretary Robert Gibbs are certain to face questions about Pelosi's remarks whenever reporters are given access to them today."

Excerpt from "Pelosi Fuels Fire on Interrogations"
by Chris Cilliza, The Washingon Post

Note that the Miss CA story ("not a fan of the ghey") instantly became a non-story as soon as common sense was applied.

(See entry: http://makalakapisei.blogspot.com/2009/05/stupid-media-d-are-for-c.html) The media fled from the story like so many little cucarachas. Then "POW!" Something replaced the void, it was a week for her highness Speaker Pelosi and her missteps in triangulation to dominate the news cycle. Not hard to connect the dots, but boy, did Pelosi's hubris to take on the CIA with accusations of lying finally leave a bad taste in someone's mouth.
