The thing that wouldn't die

Drudge is saying that the MSM is going to keep flogging the Cheney shooting story next week. Yay.

Anyway, my favorite part comes at the end of the article:
On CNN's RELIABLE SOURCES, WASHINGTON POST reporter Dana Milbank fretted that the White House is exploiting the public's growing disdain for the mainstream media. "Of course they succeed,” Milbank said of Bush aides. “The press always looks awful. They will once again make us look awful.”

CNN's Candy Crowley added: "The perception is that we're whining."

White House correspondent Bill Plante of CBS agreed.

"The vice president and the White House have both used the constant press coverage of this story as a wedge,” he told RELIABLE SOURCES host Howard Kurtz. “It plays to the prejudices of the people who are predisposed not to like us, and it's one way to distract attention from what happened.”
Keep digging, boys!

Hmmmmmm...Why would the public have a "growing disdain" for hardworking MSM folks like Dana Milbank?

You know, I really have no idea.
