Few Americans are more despicable than the US government’s press secretary. Scott McClellan, Tony Snow, Dana Perino. Watching them give talks to the press corps is itself a form of torture. It needs to end. They give zero useful information and tons of press coverage. This is the opposite relationship of what press coverage should be, which is that the more important and more insightful the information, the more coverage. Expert analysts can give 1,000 times as much information as the press secretary in the same amount of time, yet they receive one one-thousandth of the coverage.
Why do human beings talk to the American government’s press secretary?
