It has been reported to PRR that the press corp is running on fumes. "Something like only 10 credentialed reporters (most blog) down from 30+ in the early nineties." And, as we say good-by to the Seattle Post Intelligencer (P.I.) in a few weeks...as they say..."There goes another one!"
For a conservative it just means fewer bullets. However, they will be higher caliber.
