didn't lead to any of them getting fired, like with the Dan Rather memos.

It's ok to lie about Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Bill Crowley said that it was during Whitewater that the journalistic rule of you-need-2-sources was replaced with if-it's-on-Drudge-say-it.

1. She can find more recent examples than that!
The NY Times ran a zillion wrong articles about yellow cake uranium and WMD in Iraq and nobody got fired.

Everything Faux News says on a daily basis is a big fat lie and they don't self-immolate.

Rush?

2. Janeane, you're right, girl.
Colossal misuse of the media; and badly investigated reports. And none of those media whores ever had to answer for it.

That's why I sincerely believe Chris Matthews has to go.

3. Did anyone ever think
that the media types are just scared shitless of BFEE but would never admit it? That's how they act. If they offend the mighty powers that be-they could lose their job and?(heads would roll..hmmm)

I have argued before that paycheck is motivation number uno tied with the "look I'm a real journalist and my face is in TV guide and I can hobnob with the belway boys kind of power"..but lord have none of them souls or are they being threatened with worse than losing their power? Forget it. They are power loving paycheck loving souless wretches. And that's just CNN. Don't even get me started on "Hardball."

If your job is to keep the clearly obviously incompetent liars in power and actively propagandize the American public-get a new job, Wolf.

4. Did FOX fire anyone for DNA proves Clinton fathered black hooker's child?
Or the NYPost who screamed the same in their fraont page headline?

Nope.

5. I'll never forgive those fuckers for reporting on Kerry's "affair".
Even though they said that they shouldn't be as they were doing it.
