21. He leaves out one convenient fact.

Cutting and widespread criticism only began during Bush's second term. Only when everybody with a pair of eyes and two functioning brain cells could see we were knee deep in a disaster did the hard reporting begin.

Until that time editors and publishers allowed *no* dissent in the media. Speaking out was a good way to get yourself fired in fact (see Ashley Banfield). Meanwhile Bush propagandists like Judith Miller were allowed to lie to the public with complete impunity.

Republican are masters of the self-serving revision of history. Dick's example here is just another one of many.
