Would you like some cheese with your whine?

Some journalists in the MSM let their pet peeves and biases appear in their copy, but this one from ABC really getting into the territory of pathetic belly-aching:
After a four-day overseas trip that took him to four countries in the Middle East, Vice President Dick Cheney really wanted to get his iPod charged for that long return flight to Washington. Since it is his plane, the vice president's iPod took priority and was plugged into one of the only working power outlets on Air Force Two, frustrating reporters who were trying to file stories.
Having been on the road on several occasions covering various things, I can tell you, the very first thing you do before you leave is make sure you have charged batteries for emergencies!

Oh, and make sure you do your charging overnight in the hotel room, instead of waiting until you are in a place with limited power availability.

So, instead of filing whatever story they were going to submit in the first place, they file this whining screed instead...Cheney returns from the Middle East and all we hear from the MSM is about the tunes on the VP's iPod.

Oh, and their whining... We get that too.
