Hey Media, in regards to the Judith Miller story?
Okay, so you have turned this huge story into one about freedom and the press, even our media down here, mentioned freedom of the press, how about growing a pair and reporting the REAL STORY.

That story being, Karl Rove outing a CIA Agent and putting American life's in danger.

1. Isn't it funny how Perjury and Treason are buried in the reporting?

2. Yes....just hilarious.....
They'll come back and analyze themselves and clean the whole thing up after they are finished taking the public for a ride. That's what the media always does.

The Chiavo Case, case in point. Reporters sitting around talking to each other about how they may have reported it too much. Of course this is after 2 weeks of non stop coverage...when the public start to complaint.

Such poseurs!

3. In the 60's, the big oxymoron joke was 'military intelligence'...

...today, the joke is 'journalistic integrity'.

4. Since we like the media to report facts...
We can't be complaining yet that they're not reporting Karl Rove as outing a CIA agent. That's not a proven fact yet. That's what prosecutor Fitzgerald is trying to get at with the Grand Jury investigation--exactly what crime was committed, and who definitely committed it. Let's not get ahead of ourselves here. What we suspect is not the same as demonstrable fact. Just a caution.

8. I did. Thank goodness for Google! It knew how it was spelled anyway.
So tell me how this legal concept applies to the media's reporting facts? I don't quite see the connection.

6. Another place to play the "if it were Clinton" game.
By now the story would be analyzing different ways in which national security had been compromised. This would, no doubt, be followed up by computer animations depicting the effects of a WMD attack on an American city.

But this is Bushworld: NBC news gives us photos of a rabid looking Fitzgerald jailing a poor female reporter and, quoting Ed Meese, over a "relatively minor matter".

7. I suppose that compared to sacrificing 100,000 + lives, just to
...keep gas under $3.00 a gallon, it *is* 'relatively minor'. Funny.
