Can you imagine if Nixon told the Washington Post after the first Watergate Story that he is sorry and should have paid more attention to what his staff was doing and the Post never continued its investigation, because he said it would not happen again. The dumbing down of reporters and the changing culture of the press from watch dogs for the average Joe to corporate owners of the media who use their papers to make money for themselves.
