The Whore Press Just Rolls Over and Takes it

Baby Doc was about to speak to some of his loyal followers in the People's Chamber of Deputies House of Representatives at their Maryland retreat. So of course the press was kicked out.

"I support the free press, let's just get them out of the room," The Great Misleader said after just a few minutes. So the whores in the media scoop up their steno pads and meekly file out of the room. I guess it goes without saying that nobody asked "the question", of course, so nobody picked up the thousand bucks.

Turns out the irony was delicious, however. Once the slithering line of media whores left the room, Baby Doc didn't notice that a microphone was on. He got a little of his own eavesdropping medicine.

"I expect this conversation we're about to have to stay in the room. I know that's impossible in Washington," The Chimperor said with a smirk on his face.

Yeah, I guess it was impossible. It's just too bad only a few minutes went by before someone "discovered" the open mike. (What's more likely one of the media whores came back and told him about it. Things have changed since I was an aspiring newspaper hack lo these many years ago. We would never have tipped off the subject of our investigation if he'd accidentally left an open mike in a secret session. But then this current group seems to be congenitally incapable of comprehending even the general idea of investigative journalism.)
