The Press: Time for a New Era?

In honor of the wonderful thing that the press has become, I have the DCFB word of the day (because I have been reading it all the time and didn't know what it meant):

screed
n 1: a long monotonous harangue 2: a long piece of writing

As in:
Reuters takes a local piece about a young woman and soldier returning home, turns it into a not-so-subtle anti-administration screed that one first amendment expert called "politically incendiary"...

-- John Callahan via InstaPundit

I love how politics teaches me such fun new words.
