I found the cover story in this week's New York Times Magazine to be extremely disappointing. I'll comment more later on this, but my main gripe is that the author seems to overlook the complicity that some journalists share in disseminating bad information, or outright lies, in favor of protecting "back channels". Spare me. If there's anything the Iraq War has shown about the press, it's that they are far too often preoccupied with listening to the wrong people in an effort to protect the wrong things.
