Next Time, Mention Mouthpiece Theater

Great job by Nico Pitney, batting down the absolute nonsense from Dana Milbank on Howard Kurtz' program today.

"This is a person, Dana, who, when he had a chance to ask Obama a question, he approached him in the hall and asked him not one, but multiple questions about how he looked in a bathing suit. I mean, that, to me, is pathetic."

Here's that thrilling moment in reporting.

The look on Milbank's face after being called out on his own irrelevancy is priceless. Apparently, after the segment, Milbank whispered to Pitney, "you're such a dick."

And Nico, the next time you talk to Dana, be sure to ask him about the stringent journalistic standards at work in Mouthpiece Theater."
