Captains Quarters Milking Cookies post shows MSM hypocrisy and maybe a little more

CQ has a very interesting post on MSM exposure of the NSA's website leaving cookies on the computers of those who visit there. The NYT (yes again) printed an AP report (yes again) about the cookie issue and then CNN and the Guardian pile on about it.

CQ' Captain Ed then takes a look on his computer and finds the following cookies:

There have been a lot of posts about what the biggest story of 2005 is. Most of them I read and say "yeah, that is the one" until I see the next one. Perhaps this post shows one of the biggest stories of 2005 is how the MSM have just fallen all over themselves to look like the biggest fools. By attempting to embarrass Bush, they have often made him actually look good and at the same time done likely irreparable damage to themselves by the mountain of embarrassment heaped on them.

As for the little more part, CQ references a Whizbang observation that the Democratic National Committee website WAS placing persistant cookies on visitor's computers UNTIL this Tuesday. The AP story is dated this Thursday. Did somebody tip off the DNC that this story was coming so they could remove it before publishing? The real question is have MSM employees begun wearing paper bags as they go into work yet?
