Dean on the Media

Howard Dean has a Q&A with CJR on the media. It's pretty good -- I think it could be even more hardhitting -- I doubt he has time to see some of the drip-drip-drip egregiousness that webloggers like Atrios have been documenting. He mentions he might name names in a book he's working on:
You want to name some names specifically, people who were covering you?
I may do that in the book Iím writing, but Iím not going to do it right now.

Iím not saying there arenít good reporters at these papers. But between the reporters and the editors, I was pretty shocked to see how often they got it wrong. Or at least partially wrong.
I wonder if he'll call out Begala for suggesting that people who choose not to watch the dreck that is cable news are ignorant. Doubt it, but I would be amused.
