From CBS News:
It has been an Obamathon ever since the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee touched down in Afghanistan. At today's press conference in Amman, a throng of reporters recorded his every move. In total, 200 journalists requested seats on “Air Obama” -- 40 of them were accepted. The bill for the trip? About $20,000 each.In contrast, Katie Couric pointed out, as if CBS News couldn't have done anything about it, that “last night John McCain arrived in Manchester, New Hampshire” and was greeted by just “two journalists waiting on the tarmac.”
And then the CBS Evening news ended with the following:
COURIC: But will this summer of love last? And will voters want to go steady with Barack Obama? We'll find out in November. And that is the CBS Evening News for tonight. I'm Katie Couric in Amman, Jordan. Thank you for watching. Good night.My hat is off to you Mrs. Couric. First, I only thought that AP writers could be that scintillating. Second, in one simple sign out - you have tarnished and trivialized the final speck of prestige that your once mighty flagship news organization once deserved.
And that's the way it is...
