Score One for Cynicism

Glenn Greenwald, in his post on the warrantless wiretapping decision (PDF) yesterday:
I have no doubt that infinitely more coverage will be devoted to that issue [the arrest of a suspect in the Jon Benet Ramsey murder] on every news program today than on the fact that a federal court just ruled that the President's warrantless eavesdropping program is unconstitutional.
Sure enough, the CBS Evening News last night: Even now, the Ramsey case is all over the CBS News home page; you have to squint really hard to find this story buried under "Sharpton Warns Against 'Gangsterism'."

It's no wonder this country's in such great shape: we have the So-Called Liberal Media to remind us of what's truly important.

But remember: cynicism is The Daily Show's fault. Remember.

But, but...everyone knows that Saddam Hussein's sharks attacked Jon Benet!
Buddy, don't you know pretty white girls getting raped and murdered trumps just about everything in US news? Especially underage pretty white girls!

What's the latest on Natalee Holloway, anyway?
