    • I come down on the side “give the people what they want” too. While it’s clear that White House, et al., senoofepd the press, it’s possible even necessary for the press to dig deeper. These days, not that many do. Nixon would get a free pass these days.Frankly, I think the average Joe in the US is tired of bad news, and it really does keep coming. It’s true everywhere, but in most place, the scope of it isn’t as broad or as deep as it is in the States. Let’s face it; there are still responsible venues out there, but they’re getting pretty rarefied… shows on PBS and NPR. They’re there, but how many people go looking? Some, but not many. And suddenly the US version of Newsweek is Newsweak. We keep hearing about how much more robust news reporting is elsewhere… I think it comes down to the standards the public expects.
