    It's the first time the administration has done anything to hurt a millionaire and maybe it's the beginning of a trend.

Excuses for management, Wolf? I am suprised at you. Knowing that those over you know less about your job than you do. And are busy hob nobbing and making speeches. ICK! And telling YOU how to do your job. Hmm. Go figger.
    So this means he is above the law, does not have to answer for his stupidity, and people like his defenders suddenly turn deaf, and go blind. No wonder this country is in the pits.
    Funny thing is, the VP was with the guy he shot accidentally at the hospital. Once again you have to get your priorities straight. If I shot someone accidentally, the first thing I would be worried about would be that person, not Fox news or CNN. You also seem to be a little misinformed, the shooting was reported in a local news media paper in TX the next day by the person who owned the ranch. I'm sure this pissed off the major news sources because they didn't get the big scoop on the VP first.

    Bottomline is:
    -Cheney is not above the law.
    -The American news media is spineless garbage.
    -There are more important things to be covering, that are news media will not report. That's right the press is throwing away their freedom of the press because they are scared of someone strapping a bomb on their chest and going into their building. However they aren't scared to piss off the radicals out their in Iraq with the prisoner abuse pictures.

    I'd bet my bottom dollar **** had had more than a few. Hence the 14 hour wait before the incident was reported to the police. And Outsider, as you may recall, for the first few hours after the news of the shooting broke, the admin tried to spin that it was the victim's fault. Believe me, no press conference would have been given if it wasn't politically expedient for this administration to do so.

    Yes, our press is spineless. Spineless in going after this administration on the stuff that really matters...the endless scandals, the corruption, the cronyism, the spying, the memos that prove the war was a done deal the second shrub and his neo-con buddies got into office, and Tony Blair's complicity in same, the secret prison camps, the giant windfall the Medicare(written by and for drug and insurance companies) bill gave to drug and insurance companies, the giant windfall the energy bill (written by and for the energy industry)gave to the energy industry, the $8.5+ Billion that has gone missing in Iraq, the massive failure in the response to the hurricanes, and I could go on and on and on.

    But all you got to do in this country to make the press shut up is say "9/11", and their little testicles drop right off.

    I feel the need to point out that a big reason why we see so little serious news today is because the press is controlled by corporate and governmental interests. It's not because they're scared of being bombed. Who would have bombed a news station for doing a serious piece on the budget scandals in Iraq? I'll tell you what, it wouldn't have been some "terrorist." Suicide bombing, for that matter? Isn't that a little extreme for hyperbole? The only people shutting down the American press is rich, spoiled Americans with the money and political power to do it in underhanded, psuedolegal ways. And when was the last time we heard anything real about what's going on with those abuse allegations?
    So, to this I would generally argue: Cheney and the rest of the people in power are above the law - the same way that Bush Jr.'s police records have been magically hidden away in his daddy's private library; the American press is spineless garbage because they have crooked politicians with lots of cash breathing down their necks; and the news that they should be covering (if they had much of a choice) is the myriad ways that the American government has gone crooked since before the Reagan administration.

    Where does this even come from? This has nothing to do with the American press or Cheney. But perhaps it should be pointed out that the western powers aren't trying to pave over any Christian or Jewish nations at the moment. And let's not forget what's been justified in the name of the Bible.
    And why would the press be guilty of "pissing off radicals?" Again, off topic. But unless I'm mistaken, it was the US military that abused those prisoners - not the press. And it just so happens that it was US military personnel taking those pictures - imagine that! If anything, I'd think that most disenfranchised Iraqis would be relieved to see that some Americans can have at least a shred of honesty about their misdeeds - even if it isn't the Americans commiting them.

    This administration's reflexive lying is still going on, too. From 30 yards away, shotgun pellets wouldn't have penetrated through the guy's chest wall and lodge next to his heart. He was much closer than previously stated. The facts are still not all in, including regarding the alcohol consumed by Cheney prior to the event (for which there are conflicting accounts.)

    The whole thing is kind of silly, though. It doens't really affect anyone's life except the shot guy. It's just a perfect metaphor for this administration: dishonest, secretive, incompetent, and dangerous.
