‘Blood on the Floor’

Howard Kurtz opines on the roughness of the news right now:

There sure are a lot of people getting beat up out there.

Judy Miller. Mary Mapes. Maureen Dowd. To name just a few.

Not to mention George Bush, Scooter Libby, Jerry Kilgore, Doug Forrester, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Freddy Ferrer and Jon Corzine‘s ex-wife, plus Jimmy Smits, who lost that debate to Alan Alda, and Terrell Owens, who got kicked off the Eagles for running his mouth instead of the football.

Sure, politics (and media) is a contact sport, if you can’t take the heat, things have gotten meaner, and so on. But I can’t help but notice how much blood is on the floor at the moment.
