A 24-hour news-free period followed Darth Cheney's shooting of his hunting buddy. The story was finally broken when the owner of the property on which they were hunting quail told a local reporter about it.
The White House Press Corpse was spitting mad because they'd been kept out of the loop so they beat up on little Scotty McClellan today who did his usual bobbing and weaving.
Scotty says they didn't report that Cheney shot someone sooner because they were still gathering all the facts.
Apparently it took them more than a day to gather all these facts. Not one reporter asked, and I wonder, if they had to torture Cheney for 24-hours before they could get the facts.
