USN&WR snarks MSM re Kerry's Christmas in Cambodia

The weekly news magazines are late to the party, but at least one of them has the grace and humor to admit that the mainstream media has egg on its face.  John Leo's article for U.S. News & World Report is entitled "A very Kerry Christmas," and begins:

Some people wondered how long the major media would be willing to ignore the Christmas-in-Cambodia story. Well, the answer is in: at least 10 or 11 days.

It just gets better from there.

Update:  Michael Barone also writes about Kerry and Cambodia in USN&WR, without much snark and with the focus on Kerry rather than on the media's noncoverage of the story.  (Hat-tip Hugh Hewitt, who found the story of Kerry's 2000 "gun-running" claims that Barone mentions, but that still begs for MSM follow-up.)

Sorry for being so ignorant. I always read or hear "MSM". What exactly does it mean or stand for?
