“Lara Logan, You Suck”

,

Matt Taibbi lays out the utterly spineless way in which corporate journalists go about their work:

Anyone who wants to know why network television news hasn’t mattered since the seventies just needs to check out this appearance by Logan. Here’s CBS’s chief foreign correspondent saying out loud on TV that when the man running a war that’s killing thousands of young men and women every year steps on his own dick in front of a journalist, that journalist is supposed to eat the story so as not to embarrass the flag.

Another choice quote, which should never need to be said:

Hey, assholes: you do not work for the people you’re covering!
