#rsrh Wednesday is Reporters Whine to Politico Day.

Well, I didn’t actually go and look to see if Wednesday has become the traditional day for stories where reporters complainoff the record – about how the White House treats them like not particularly bright children who need regular beatings*, but we do keep seeing them.  I recommend reading it only for its amusement value: after all, if they lack the self-respect to stand up for themselves, why should the rest of us care?

*If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say that the problem here is probably at the editorial level.  Not that it ultimately matters which parts of print/television media are being the greater cowards.
