Now that 5 years of irreparable damage is done to our country and our planet, the media wakes up and begins to tell the truth about Bush. This is exacly why I depend more on bloggers than on paid journalists to tell me what’s really going on. I never once believed the WMD bullshit, for example. It amazed me that anyone couldn’t see through that garbage.
Behind the NYT paywall, Krugman drops more science about how the media is only just now reporting on weaknesses that Bush has had all along.
Read the speeches Howard Dean gave before the Iraq war, and compare them with Colin Powell’s pro-war presentation to the U.N. Knowing what we know now, it’s clear that one man was judicious and realistic, while the other was spinning crazy conspiracy theories. But somehow their labels got switched in the way they were presented to the public by the news media.
As I’ve said before: paging the 4th estate…break time is over, get back to work before you make yourselves irrelevant! Thanks to Ed Cone for reading the NYT paid content so the rest of us don’t have to. 🙂
