Ralphie and Friends 7: "Ms. Quoted"

This Week's Sunday Cartoon introduces our representative of the mainstream media. (a.k.a. the MSM), Ms. Distortia Quote.

The MSM, in their pursuit of things catchy, punchy, brief, and controversial, often make stories where there were none before. A frequent criticism of former Democratic Presidential Nominee Sen. John Kerry was that he couldn't seem to get the knack of "Speaking in Sound Bites". Today's cartoon is an extreme example of what can happen when you confuse the media with an overly-long answer.

Believe it or not, today's 'toon was written BEFORE the press went and proved my point with the whole Wesley Clark context-removal parade that aired all last week.
