What the MSM is interested in...

OK, Mark in Mexico points out that the White House Press Corps really isn't interested in:
1. Terrorism/GWoT
2. Our troops in Iraq
3. Replacing 1, possibly 2, possibly 3 Supreme Court justices
4. G8 / African hunger/debt
6. Social Security
7. Oil prices
8. Nuclear proliferation in Iran and Korea
9. A bloated, corrupt, inefficient United Nations
10. Hurricane aftermath in Florida and Alabama

Ok, possibly #3 since a whopping 15% of the questions asked at the White House Press briefing today.
Terrorism/Global War on Terror and Nuclear Weapons in North Korea and American Military in Iraq got a whopping 3% each.
What was the big winner? With 71% of the questions on a single subject?
The DNC/MSM trying to put Karl Rove on the Grassy Knoll.

Prioritizing issues is not the MSM's strong points. But scandals, that's a different story. The MSM is becoming more and more like supermarket tabloids, everyday. They can jump on the perceived scandal of the day as good as any, whether its true or not.
