Hold Your Nose

Scott McClellan’s book makes the following (almost certainly very accurate) statement regarding the media's coverage of the lead up to the Iraq war,
"In this case, the 'liberal media' didn't live up to its reputation. If it had, the country would have been better served."

The media, all three networks, responded on the Today Show this morning. (You only need to watch about the first three minutes, thirty seconds, as the rest is just giggling self-adulation by the news media stars.)

Katie Couric, whose news show is the least watched and which, for the record, I cannot abide to watch, is the only one of the three who has the courage to come right out and say that the media did not do its job.
Charles Gibson is utterly disgusting, and you can find out more about just how completely dishonest he is by reading Glenn Greenwald’s post today on the subject at Salon.

Good God Almighty, our news media reeks.
