Yawp Redux

A few quotes about the Yawp Heard Round The Campaign:

* "[T]he reason we owe this man (whom, by the way, I do not support for president) an apology is because we say that we want our presidents to be one of us. But when they act like one of us, then we beat them up and say they are not acting presidential," says Dave Lieber of the Star-Telegram (via blogAmY).

* "I don’t think we overplayed [the Iowa speech] a scintilla more than we did Michael Jackson hanging the kid over a balcony," says Fox News Senior Vice President John Moody (via the Howler).

* "Individually we may feel okay about our network, but the cumulative effect for viewers with 24-hour cable coverage is -- it may have been overplayed and, in fact, a disservice to Dean and the viewers," says Andrew Heyward, President of CBS News (via ABC).

Partial credit to Diane Sawyer and ABC. They actually ran a story correcting the misperception about Dean's speech. Too little, too late, I'm afraid. But hey, at least they're admitting to a mistake--contrast to the media's treatment of Gore (or Clinton for that matter).
