Crowley lambastes McGinniss:

McGinniss's gimmick ... is bad for journalism. It plays right into the hands of the many peopleincluding Sarah Palin, who is shrewdly ridiculing McGinnisswith an interest in portraying reporters as creeps with no sense of decency.

Bad for journalism? What journalism? The MSM let this farce of a politician go an entire campaign without a single real press conference. Where was Crowley then? Waiting for a returned phone call from Goldfarb? Exercizing sufficient "deference"? The key point is that McGinniss has gone to Alaska and will stay there a while. That's how you find out who this delusional phony truly is. And that's why Palin may be a little rattled. She knows this won't be another bullshit profile from Time. I think the press should be right in front of powerful people's faces. Right there. Unblinking, so to speak.
