[url]http://www.washingtontimes.com/national/20011018-5649454.htm[/url] [i]spores, all the time: For days, the press has been infected with anthrax frenzy, spreading the ultimate cooties story with big headlines and purple prose, spooking the public and vexing officials who must cope with the newest national anxiety. There is a right way and a wrong way to do it, however. "This is not a time for misinformation, rumor or exaggeration," said Andrew Kohut of the Pew Research Center yesterday. "The media must strike a balance between informing the public and scaring them. This is a time for careful news judgment and accuracy, because there are no real directions in place on how to walk that fine line."[/i] I mean, really. Only one person has died. The disease can in most cases be cured with 50 year old technology - penicillin.

CBS finally got their anthrax cases today. I am wondering if they did it to themselves so as not to feel left out. I can just imagine Dan Blather fuming "What so special about Tom Brokaw that HIS staff get anthrax and mine doesn't?" I probably have worse things up my nose than anthrax spores.

Hmm, another anti-gun Liberal newsman gets a anthrax letter...
