    They also cover high-speed car chases in LA.

    I just hate this tag of "the media," which incorrectly suggests a consensus viewpoint. Everybody has a brand name and does their damndest to get it out there. If you have a problem with someone, name them. Using "the media" is as lame as complaining about "politicians."

    Huckabee is of course, correct. It seems the only way a presidential candidate gets any pub these days is if he/she does something stupid or becomes embroiled in some type of controversy. Did you check out Obama Girl? Maybe Huck can get Brittney or Jessica Simpson to sing a ditty about him, or Him, whichever he prefers.
    And I appreciate the effort to "frame" the Paris issue into a larger context, but that's like airing B-roll of women in bikinis while doing a piece on skin cancer.
