One might say that everyone is attacking the press lately. (Mary Matalin, who spoke along with husband James Carville, at the Hillsborough County Bar Foundation last night, was particularly harsh on the press and press coverage.)
The Government has even had some recent indictments related to the press (see here). And the word is out (here) that the former vice president of circulation of Newsday entered a guilty plea a few weeks ago. The plea was to charges of "mail fraud and income-tax evasion" and includes cooperation on the part of the accused. One can only imagine that with cooperation there will be more to come.
