POT, KETTLE, ETC....Former Pentagon spokesman Charles Krohn, a retired Army colonel, talks to Howard Kurtz about administration criticism of the press:

When senior officials express disappointment that schemes to manipulate the media aren't working well, one might say it's a triumph of principle over power.

One might. Especially since the charge of media cowardice that prompted this came from Paul Wolfowitz, who (a) is largely responsible for the murderous security situation in Baghdad and (b) never travels there himself without a large military security contingent.

Sometimes these guys really outdo themselves.
