Thursday Evening Document Dump

Media bashing is usually somebody else's schtick, but this one annoys me so much I can't stand it anymore. Watch the "conversation" with Katie Couric and notice how quickly they turn from justifying their lack of curiosity about the war, and their firm convictions that despite what Scott McClellan might say, their hands are clean!--Which is not the same argument the White House is using....nosirree!--to "happy talk" as they welcome "Katie" back.

Yuppers, all the important journalists disagreed with Katie Couric, and agreed they didn't give in to pressure to be jingoistic about the war, or tell false tales, or do anything. Besides, they covered Katrina!

And I believe them, even though they accepted "embeds" and didn't report anything about the war that was even vaguely true for years, and even though it's visible to a blind man that they were just functioning as a propaganda arm of the Pentagon, and they wouldn't know the truth if it bit 'em in the ass. I mean, they didn't give in to the pressure!

Because they didn't need to.....
