Thanks to Prof. Ted Pease's Word of the Day for this quote:
"America loathes the White House press corps.
This is especially true when the journalists
preen for the television cameras, yell at the
press secretary to achieve a dramatic effect, act
bratty and petulant, appear openly disrespectful
to the president and the vice president and
generally behave like unruly five-year-old
children playing in a sandbox."

reviewing journalists' confrontations with White
House Press Secretary Scott McClellan over the
Cheney hunting accident, 2006
