Screw the Press Corps

I have been reading a lot on the great Cheney incident, and one thing stands out above all else. The elite press are pissed off that the story - which took place in Texas - was reported in Texas.

I think that the Bush Administration should make a point of annoucing import stuff via small town papers all over the US. Why should the WaPo and the NY or LA Slimes get the scoops? Why not give a reporter in Dayton, Ohio first crack at something?

Next taxpayers could stop paying for the airfare and meals for the press corps. (They don't like the food anyway, so let them travel on commercial airlines, or charter their own flights.)
