Only 34?

Salon gives us 34 Bush administration scandals worse than Whitewater. Of course, Whitewater wasn't actually a scandal, so it's rather like saying "34 scandals worse than no scandal at all," but somehow I imagine that point will be lost on our press.

Speaking of Whitewater, the Times has yet to address their fraudulent Whitewater reporting (in fact, current and former Timesers defend it to this day). But, hey, maybe someone will find the time to ask Jill Abramson about that at this ethics conference thingy.

And, yes, it was before her time, but last I checked Jeff Gerth was still on the payroll...
