How reporters treat Bush and Obama differently

John Cole makes a rather depressing comparison between how reporters treated Bush vs. how they are treating Obama. When Bush lied our country into a disastrous invasion and occupation, reporters sucked up to him instead of meaningfully challenging him. When Obama tries to fix our disastrous economy and broken financial system, reporters try to play gotcha instead of meaningfully challenging him.

Humans are broken: what we need to know about and what we find interesting have drifted so far apart I'm not sure we can survive. (This is more of my "fish out of water" thesis on human nature. Is it just me or was my blog better back in 2006? Internal Monologue's 3-year anniversary is tomorrow. Pretty soon, even Twitter feeds will have a meaningful heritage to reflect upon.)
