Ok, so the answer to my question is probably not. I guess I really should have less confidence in the MSM.
On the other hand, the news today isn't all bad. I used up all my good taste on Russert. You really can't expect me to say any nice thing about this guy. I can't even be expected to keep my mouth shut about him. He was scum. It is people like Helms who make me wish I believed in an eternity, where he could be roasting for ever.
