Why doesn't our famously free press cover Social Security honestly?

regarding why the press acts as it acts is a good concise description of one of our most profound problems.

While reading Grieder's comments I couldn't help but think of a scene from "All The Presidents Men" when Ben Bradlee told the City Editor to pull the inexperienced Woodward and Bernstein off the story. Bradlee intended to assign 'experienced political reporters who had the sources' If the City Editor had not been able to delay Bradlee's intentions, Watergate may have been stillborn; at least the Post's involvement would have probably been cut short.
