Cheney's morning papers

The Smoking Gun has obtained and posted Vice President Dick Cheney's requirements for a hotel room when traveling. It's fairly mundane stuff, like a pot of decaf and diet caffeine-free Sprite.

I found the most interesting part to be his news sources. He wants televisions tuned to Fox News, and he requests five papers:
  • New York Times,
  • USA Today,
  • Wall Street Journal,
  • local paper and
  • Washington Post.
The highbrow Washington and New York papers, plus the two national dailies and a local paper. But no Washington Times or New York Sun.

For what it's worth.
