Yes. From infiltrating the White House press corps with fake journalists (who were gay military man dating service providers by choice in their real jobs) to lob meatballs to a flailing President in press conferences, to having moles in the major national news services to do their dirty work, and the complete lack of critical reporting on the utter failure of the Bush administration's Iraq policy from the intelligence gathering and manipulation to the dismal failure to implement a plan to deal with the aftermath of deposing Saddam. But, worst of all was the press's willingness to be manipulated to report on all kinds of extraneous side shows in the election seasons, from the Swiftboaters to gay marriage bans, when all the while the failed policies and strategies of the Bush administration in Iraq went unchallenged. The press has become second rate - run entirely as a business, and ultimately susceptible to manipulation because of this weakness. And Rove is the master-manipulator, once he maps out the responses to stimuli of a subject.
It is sad you don't see the man for the failure he is, as your outlook on the press is only logical if you enjoy those shit sandwiches he serves.
