The press people being interviewed in Hubris are as guilty as Cheney

Why was the media not yelling at the tops of their lungs?

*Now* they tell us they knew it was all a lie?

We Wuz Had.

By every one of these motherfuckers.

WE knew it was a lie. We knew They knew it was a lie. But the Fourth Estate failed to do their jobs.

Just as they continue to not do.

3. What used to be journalism is now within the realm of comedy.

Comedians are our only journalists.

5. And the sad part is they knew that we knew too

The bush cabal weren't trying very hard to hide the fact that there was no real reason to go into Iraq other than stealing oil and regime change

6. The role of the "media" in this needs its own documentary.

The administration coudn't have done this without them.

9. I was always angry at the media for pushing the war...It meant big bucks and lots of viewers.

They are almost as responsible as the administration. They never filmed the protests or reported them. The NYT was also guilty! This program is really making me angry all over again. So many lives and dollars lost!

10. remember the 2002 Paula Zahn/ Scott Ritter interview?

http://archives.cnn.com/2002/US/09/13/ritter.cnna/

she was rolling her eyes, smirking, sneering......oh reaaaallly now Scott, you must be drinking Saddam's KoolAid... He was a voice screaming truth in the wilderness, and all she could do was ridicule him.

ZAHN: To hear Scott Ritter, all of the talk of war with Iraq is groundless. The former U.N. weapons inspector says Iraq poses no threat to the U.S. and military action would be a historic mistake.

11. I *do* remember. I also say it was just one of HUNDREDS of examples

Not putting your post down in any way. Just that the media was INTENTIONALLY doing what it did.

14. Pullitzer-winning Chris Hedges was squeezed out of the NYT

for daring to express an opinion against the Iraq war.
