I am not sure whether you should call this progress or not.

Last week I got a few hundred hits from the NYT's editorial page after criticising them for being "too soft" on Bush & Co. They were demanding new laws on wire-tapping, but I said there was no point in new laws if Bush is just going to ignore them anyway.

Today's NYT editorial has this to say about the Alphonse Jackson HUD scandal:
This would be the moment at which we would normally call on the president to ask for Mr. Jackson's resignation. But the country has long since learned that Mr. Bush does not regard poor performance as a firing offense, though the record on that score is clear. So far, Mr. Jackson's standout achievement has been to drop all pretense in revealing how the administration really works.
