"Professional" Media, Eh?

Instapundit points out that Jon Stewart of the Daily Show was the first person to ask John Kerry if he was ever in Cambodia.

Instapundit highlights the inability (or lack of desire) of the press to get the answers directly from Kerry on the issue. He says, "But I thought these guys were supposed to be able to get the story, not just take what was handed out." After all, the professionals obviously know how to do this so much better than us hacks.

The Question for Oliphant and his ilk is this, then: Mark Twain said, ""The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them." Isn't it true, then, that the reporter who does not get the facts has no advantage over the person who cannot get the facts?
