G. Will

I agree that he's the most objective on the recent questions. What I don't understand about him is how he, like so much of the "MSM", will move seamlessly from snipy talking points mode to something that sounds logical and right back to pointless banter for the purpose of filling the hot air of the 24-hour cable news cycle.

We get honest analysis about 10-20% of the time *from the best pundits*, I've noticed; the rest of the time George Will comments on things like how foolish women are -- in his view -- for thinking that abortion is a "choice" (and he always uses the scare quotes).

Mark Shields on the PBS News Hour is the only commentator who does not Waste My Time, and I can't say the same for David Brooks.

The approval rating for the press is currently lower than that of President Bush and of Congress, according to a graph I saw on Glenn Greenwald.

Kudos!
