Is the Flynn resignation a sea change?

That's what some of the comments on TV indicate. They're saying there is a whole new attitude, a different approach to news coverage, more skepticism, less tolerance for the excesses, and so on. "We're going to start doing our jobs now." Could this be true? Do they even remember how to ask tough questions? Investigative reporting? Does anyone want to be the next Carl Bernstein?

1. No.

 

In fact I'm not even sure why this one had legs over everything else. I mean Tillerson's ties to Russia are right there out in the open. And some of the others are arguably just as bad if not worse. In fact I think Flynn's transgression are even a little more obtuse than the others and harder to understand to the average joe. Which is why I'm surprised it panned out the way it did. And I didn't see anything that indicated that the media were hitting this one harder than any of the other stuff coming out of this administration.

2. Not really.

But they'll play it up as though they really mean it.
