...The One-Minute Pundit

News hacks as movie stars confirms not only their own stratospheric opinions of themselves but that the whole reporting business is a luck business, where up-and-coming toadies do their adjective-writing best to get all the luck they can protecting their clients' (i.e., subjects') hides. When we start talking about Brian "The Original TV Newser!" Stelter's love life we are clearly talking of people who are now so ostentatiously successful they need have no concern for us peons. The only thing David Carr could have done better was to dress as Louis XIV; that would at least have honestly confirmed the hacks' superiority to their mere readers.
