Turned up to eleven: Fair and Balanced

The Talking Points Memo drops a bombshell today, in the form of Bob Novak's reporting on Dick Cheney's upcoming trip to the Middle East. Apparently, he is considering shutting the press out of the loop, and not taking the press corps with him. Mr. Marshall thinks that this is "Nixonian", and portends deep trouble ahead for the Veep. I don't know if he is right on this one, but he has been right before...I will be watching (admittedly, with some schadenfreude) with interest.
