Cable nets could learn something here

From the Obama press conference as live-blogged by the NYT:

[CNN's] Ed Henry follows up. Why did you wait days to express outrage [about AIG bonuses]? All the action is coming out of New York Attorney Generalís office.

Ah, finally, a reply. Mr. Obama: ďIt took us a couple of days because I like to know what Iím talking about before I speak.Ē

Gosh, what a concept. Study, learn and ponder before shooting off your mouth. Hey, all of you at Fox News! Hey, Chris Matthews at MSNBC! Hey, Lou Dobbs at CNN! Didja hear that?

Video here.
