"The major press is under attack"

I just read an account of Bill Keller's address at a Columbia Spectator event last night. Bill is the executive editor at the New York Times. I found two of Bill's remarks rather amusing.
"He noted that, according to a recent opinion poll, the public’s trust in journalists is at its lowest point in decades. He attributed this in part to the increasingly polarized nature of the American public, who look to the press for support of their viewpoints."
Note to Bill: perhaps the public's trust in journalist has something to do with a certain Jayson Blair and a certain Dan Rather. Have you ever heard the term, "non sequitur"?
“At the moment,” he said, “the major press is under attack from ideologues on the right and left.”
On the contrary Bill. I would call the attacks an inside job. You are imploding. We bloggers are simply recording your mistakes for posterity sake.
