Media Rules for Generals

1. When you're leading the fight, you are "dictatorial and somewhat dense," not a strategic thinker, a "liar," don't "get it," and are "inexperienced."

2. When you're no longer in the fight and you criticize it from a tactical, strategic or political point of view, your ruminations warrant front-page headlines.

3. That is, unless you're criticizing the press. Then your thoughts are again lacking in value.

Okay. Got it.
