Notice, please, this in today's Chi Trib, by deputy edit page editor John McCormick, once of Newsweek, about "the press" missing a story because of its insularity. He shows (diplomatically) how Chi Trib ran stories that did not miss the story, in this case how the nation was veering towards "exercised values" vote orientation, while articulating nicely the beef vs. mainstream media -- MSM in blogger parlance. Yes, Virginia, Chi Trib is quoting National Review Online, and Newt Gingrich too.
