Do Journalists Ever Get Embarrassed to Be Doing This?

This unattributed AP story on U.S. Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor is nothing more than a puff piece. It begins by gushing that the judge has shared stories with female senators about reading Nancy Drew as a child.

This criticism of the report, of course, is not intended as a negative comment on Ms. Sotomayor, not is it intended to convey the idea that a hit piece might have been any better. However, I would be embarrassed to have written this article.
