Why Oh Why Can't We Have a Better Press Corps?

Yes, it's yet another example of journamalism from that inferior bird-cage liner that is the Washington Post. I thought Josh Micah Marshall must be exaggerating David Broder's latest column for effect. But David Broder's column tonight really is that bad:

Talking Points Memo: by Joshua Micah Marshall: September 17, 2006 - September 23, 2006 Archives: Shorter David Broder: Bush is a lawless president at war with the constitution. Also, Gore and Kerry, who opposed him, are know-it-alls I don't like. Hopefully Republican moderates and Lieberman can all get reelected so the country can be saved.

Can't see why anybody pays for it, even now. Suggestions as to why anybody might pay for it would be welcome.

So: a contest: what have you learned in the past month from the Post that you couldn't have learned more reliably at the same or lower price elsewhere? What have you learned that you didn't have to verify before you could trust it?
