Which is why I made sure to say "more important in this respect." There's no question propper ethics from our leaders is more important in other ways than the honesty of the media. I only wanted to point out the failings of the media to properly watchdog ALL politicians and their indiscretions.
BTW, the Michael Isikoff who reported this faulty story in Newsweek was the same Isikoff who tried to repeatedly break several of the Clinton infidelity stories back in the 90s, but was stonewalled by his own editors and unable to do so. More irony around every corner.
