ABSTRACT
Reveals the lack of perspective or a sense of what is important in either journalism or politics in the United States. Reaction to an article on fishing for monkeys written by Jay Forman; Need to realize that the article was written for fun, not to be scrutinized in order to criticize journalist Michael Kinsley for political reasons; View that this practice in journalism is mirrored by a similar 'nit-picking' practice in politics, in which public figures are criticized for minor reasons instead of important ones.
