Dean Reynolds is the new face of network news arrogance, elitism and irrelevance

CBS News correspondent Dean Reynolds makes news by complaining about campaign creature comforts and deadlines through that hip yuppie thing called "blogging" on the CBS News site (the one that Katie Couric pretends to "blog" on):

"...The McCain folks are more helpful and generally friendly. The schedules are printed on actual books you can hold in your hand, read, and then plan accordingly. The press aides are more knowledgeable and useful to us in the news media. The events are designed with a better eye, and for the simple needs of the press corps...

"The McCain campaign plane is better than Obama's, which is cramped, uncomfortable and smells terrible most of the time. Somehow the McCain folks manage to keep their charter clean, even where the press is seated.

"The other day in Albuquerque, N.M., the reporters were given almost no time to file their reports after McCain spoke. It was an important, aggressive speech, lambasting Obama's past associations. When we asked for more time to write up his remarks and prepare our reports, the campaign readily agreed to it. They understood.

"Similar requests are often denied or ignored by the Obama campaign aides...."

Boo hoo hoo.
