Click the above title to read about how Rod Blagojevich was worked up about the press...
"According to the criminal complaint that the United States attorney filed, Governor Blagojevich, while allegedly trying to set a price for a United States Senate seat, also spent a significant amount of time going after the press, especially The Chicago Tribune, whose editorial page had been calling for his impeachment."
Blagojevich, while revolting, is the least of our worries in terms of government corruption. That traditional Chicago shakedown can't even hold a candle to the Halliburton and Blackwater backhand deals.
But maybe this indicates a return to journalism that seeks to uncover and present facts, and is strong in convictions. I am optimistic that with the end of the Bush era, we will be seeing a slow reversal of the last 8 years of the Rovian/McCarthyite crushing of the press. And while corporations that have tremendous conflict of interest issues with a free press still own much of the media, I'm hoping that newspapers and news sources will work to tell us many of the unpleasant facts no one really wants to hear about.
