This Journalism Sucks II

The Washington Times just isn't doing well today. Here's the opening paragraph onStephan Dinan's byline entitled "We The People to open next Congress: House to read Constitution:"
The Constitution frequently gets lip service in Congress, but House Republicans next year will make sure it gets a lot more than that - the new rules the incoming majority party proposed this week call for a full reading of the country's founding document on the floor of the House on Jan. 6.
The Constitution certainly gets a lot of lip service (does it?), so thank god the Republicans are going to give it a ton of lip service. I know the Washington Times is a mouthpiece for the GOP, but this is simply inane.

It's too bad that there's money to pay for this meaningless drivel but not any to pay for journalism. It's too bad that in an age of shrinking news budgets Stephan Dinan still has a job. Or maybe the Washington Times just fired all its editors (who, traditionally, would be the ones to tell a journalist that they don't know the meaning of "lip service" or the meaning of "reading the Constitution on the floor of the House").
