Why the Fuss About Club Fed?- Well, there are good pictures of guys coming off planes in shackles, which you don't get with Enron. Pieces without pictures aren't easy to do on TV. Second, the media feels more comfortable in confrontation mode rather than simply reporting. They jumped all over Enron hoping that there would be some big figures brought down-no luck so far. Lacking a good kill with Enron, many of the pack jumped on this Guantanamo story. Finally, human rights stories are ways to make freinds in liberal circles, even if there aren't any violations other than making double sure the detainees don't pull somthing. Hey, Rummy said there’s no story there, lay off. Yeah, sure they will.
