It appears that the "big three"* got their feelings so hurt or egos so bent out of shape that they don't know anything else to do but to make up stories. Vice President Chaney accidently shot a friend while on a quail hunt. The man will recover. That is the story. However, since he did not alert the national media first through the White House sources, they got their panties in a wad and are taking it out in every newscast and printed word possible.
*HA! NBC even led with this thinking it was the most important news story of the day!!! ABC also looked incredibly lame.
