Local news covering Cheney just fine

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times continues to do an excellent job of covering the hunting accident (free registration required) involving the Vice President. If the political spin is what interests you, then by all means, pay attention to the usual suspects, but if your interest is the story itself, try the local press (where, at least in this case, it doesn’t appear anybody is trying to impress anybody else).

While I think it probably would’ve been smart for the White House to release the story Saturday night, the fact that they didn’t isn’t the story, folks. The “crisis” in Washington over this is a manufactured story that fits neatly into the feeding frenzy mentality of the national press. The Caller-Times offers an editorial on the subject, which is where it belongs.
