Degrees of separation
Last week, U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft finally bestirred himself to do a proper thing.
He recused himself personally from involvement in an investigation of whether Bush administration officials leaked the name of a CIA agent to a syndicated columnist.
I'm not a big fan of John Ashcroft.
But the Inquirer coverage of him drips with such seething contempt as to render it unreadable.
Who is more heavy handed? John Ashcroft, a man who is restrained by the oversight of the media and the people of the US?
Or the Philadelphia Inquirer which prints such drivel as unbiased analysis and accepts no criticism?
