Better Editing, Please
This story consists primarily of Republicans attacking Scott McClellan for writing a book about his experiences as White House spokesman. As presented by Yahoo, at least, the story waits til the 11th graf to let McClellan say anything; it goes to the 19th graf before we hear from a Democratic ex-spokesman, who gets 2 1/2 grafs to semi-defend McClellan before going right back to one of the Republican ex-spokesmen quoted earlier.
I don't know if McClellan's account is accurate but I do know that this is an amazingly unbalanced story that should have been fixed before it saw the light of day.
