It's not that hard to do

Write a straightforward headline and news story, I mean. Case in point. As of this writing, the lead headline on the Web site of the conservative German paper Die Welt is Republikaner torpedieren Obamas Konsens-Vision (Republicans are torpedoing Obama's vision for consensus) 13.02.2009.

"Torpedoing", it says. Did I mention this is a conservative newspaper?

Do we need to look farther to know that the American press isn't treating the story that way?

Los Angeles Times: Gregg's exit as Commerce nominee nudges the partisan gap wider

Washington Post: Gregg Withdraws As Commerce Pick

New York Times: Gregg Ends Bid for Commerce Job

San Francisco Chronicle: Gregg drops out as Commerce secretary nominee

USA Today: Commerce nominee withdraws, cites 'irresolvable conflicts'

Washington Times (aka, Moonie Times): Obama faces a Cabinet setback, again

And, just a wild guess: the Pod Pundits on the Sunday news shows will be wringing their hands in deep concern over Obama's failure to produce more "bipartisanship".

So, I guess maybe for our press corps, it is that hard to do!

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
