    Let Us Tell Them Ourselves

    Anyone think the chummy relationship between intelligence people and the media is nothing to be concerned about or real? Why then are so many of these intel people allowed to get behind a microphone and in front of a camera so often?

    What? Politico, which doesn't often say much of anything worth repeating, agrees? Though one point lacking in the story is that the jobs are also probably payback for furnishing intel for shows like Rachel Maddow's.

    Former intelligence officials are enjoying second acts at television pundits. Here’s why that should bother us.

    All the newsies like to get former intel, and former military to help them "give perspective" to the "news" It gives the outfit some claimed credibility that they probably still don't deserve.

    Though a lot of them were political hacks, to begin with.
