Annals of journalism

From my Wall Street Journal morning e-mail:

"The issue of stock-options backdating has roiled corporate suites across the U.S., in Silicon Valley more than anywhere else. And Kevin Ryan, the U.S. attorney for northern California, sought to highlight the show of force his office has made on options backdating even as a crowd of reporters sought to ask him about the higher-profile case of baseball player Barry Bonds in the steroid scandal, the San Jose Mercury News reports."

Of course it's not really the journalists' fault. They're just giving the people what they want. "Hypocrite lecteur!—mon semblable!—mon frère!"
