Anderson Cooper in jail?

A Washington Post columnist takes on the sorry state of the fourth estate.

Published June 1, 2006 3:01PM (EDT)

I am trying to figure out just what passage from Gene Weingarten's latest Washington Post column to quote here. I really want to quote the whole thing, but that raises all sorts of complicated copyright issues. So I will just describe it. The column is an excerpt from a journalism school commencement address Weingarten delivered. He says there are not enough Jews in the media, he calls Dick Cheney "Satan," and he proposes jailing Anderson Cooper. Go read it here. It is not yet noon, but I am willing to bet that this is the best link you will find today.
