1. Unbelievable.
Just unbelievable, that's all. No one forced the MSM to swallow all the neocon bullshit--they were too lazy to do their job. They ignored every warning bell that went off. Unbelievable.

5. No!
They were told what to say. Now they are being told what to say, only it sounds like a confession that they were played.

18. You know what -- I think that you're right. The corporate media...
is just following the new script that they've been given. They're still doing exactly what they're told by the puppetmasters, whoever they are.

11. Oh no!
According to Matthews, he was suspicious of the claims from the beginning- according to his lambasting of Daschle.

Chris Matthews is a $2 whore. :eyes:

17. $2 dollar whore?
My dear, that is vastly over-estimating Tweety's value on the open market. I'd say two cents would be somewhere in the correct neighborhood.

13. Well to be fair...
...Tweety never backed the Iraq invasion.

He has been a shameless Bush backer, and certainly could and should have done his job like the rest of the press corps(e) could and should have done theirs; but he did not like the Iraq invasion from the beginning.

Of course they played the press, because it's so easy to do

7. What disingenuous drivel. Why didn't Tweety and others
know they were being used from the get-go ? Every DU'er knew it.

This is just excuse making and horse shit.

I have been thinking - I have over the course of many, many years known 3 Neiman Fellows. Note: Neiman Fellows are "leading" journalists who receive an appointment to do graduate work at Harvard. I would have to describe each of them as utterly lacking in curiosity. None of them were particularly studious and their first impression remained their last. And, socially they were all pathetic and inept. No wonder the state of the media is so fucked.

8. Tweety was a willing pinball
now he's pissed he was used.

I think a new day's dawning with these guys, there's hope yet that at least some of the MSM will be more critical and questioning of propoganda-spewing administration officials

15. I don't think he is pissed at all. He is just looking for ratings.
Also, I think he has probably become aware that a large segment of the population just thinks he is a fool and this course correction is an attempt to become a little more weighty. Unless he gets his meds corrected it won't work. By late afternoon he exhibits "poor impulse control" and a tendency for "inappropriate response".

Also, he has to be embarrassed/pissed that Libby called Tim R. (just another GE broadcast whore) to complain about him. In other words, Tweety is not even important enough to get the phone call directly. How embarrassing.

16. Actually he was one of the few
that expressed mild discomfort (like an itch in the crotch) at the invasion, lol.

20. If you hit a pinball machine too hard
too much "english" then it ends your game.

TILT!

22. Thanks for posting liveoaktx, even if it is total BS from Tweety.
If many of us here at DU knew...why didn't he?

23. Thanks, liveoaktx! I posted it PLUS THE VIDEO OF CARL LEVIN talking about
newly declassified pre-war intelligence which clearly demonstrates the lies. They're in a reply in this thread, which cites the MSNBC article in the OP:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...
thread title (11/7): MSNBC: How Bush sold the war to the American people (MUST READ!!)

The posted videos are in Reply #4.

As always, liveoaktx, thank you so very much for making these important video records available to us!!!! :patriot:
