Let This Leak Go

As it is, all he has done so far is send Judith Miller of the New York Times to jail and repeatedly haul this or that administration high official before a grand jury, investigating a crime that probably wasn't one in the first place but that now, as is often the case, might have metastasized into some sort of coverup -- but, again, of nothing much. Go home, Pat.

What an assclown. These morons did direct harm to national security, but that's ok because it was just a political dirty trick?

This is old, but I hadn't seen it. My respect for Shep Smith and Geraldo Rivera went up dramatically.

Rumsfeld Laments Global Reach of War News
Topic: Media 12:17 am EDT, May 26, 2005

] One of the military's new wartime challenges is dealing
] with global media that can instantly spread around the
] world information that may be false or damaging to U.S.
] interests, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said
] Wednesday.

What about things that are true and damaging? (Abu Gharib, Bagram, Gitmo, No Child Left Behind getting no money to bring them along, Court nominess called unconsionable by their own collegues) Maybe if this administration stopped doing such inanely mindless and often abusive things, they wouldn't have to worry so much about this.

Rummy? When they start spreading false information about you guys, I might care. As it is, they're not, and if it's true and damaging, well that just means it's something you probably shouldn't have done in the first place.

Bill Moyers Fights Back
Topic: Media 1:56 pm EDT, May 18, 2005

] "The more compelling our journalism, the angrier the
] radical right of the Republican Party gets," he
] explained. "That's because the one thing they loathe more
] than liberals is the truth. And the quickest way to be
] damned by them as liberal is to tell the truth."

After reading this I got the feeling he's more than a little pissed off at these guys.

Yahoo! News - ABC Apologizes for Steamy Football Intro
Topic: Media 5:41 pm EST, Nov 16, 2004

] The NFL called the intro "inappropriate and unsuitable
] for our `Monday Night Football' audience."
] "While ABC may have gained attention for one of its other
] shows, the NFL and its fans lost," NFL spokesman Greg
] Aiello said.

Oh bullshit. It's a 9pm game, they made a joke and dollars to donuts, they got calls from people pissed off about alluding to a white woman jumping in the sack with a black man.

Now I'll grant that the show they were pushing is the latest in a long line of cheese fests, but come on. I guess the message is violence is good, sex is bad.

CJR November/December 2004: Blinded by Science
Topic: Media 8:57 pm EST, Nov 15, 2004

] The scientific consensus is quite firm that abortion does
] not cause breast cancer. If reporters want to take
] science and its conclusions seriously, their reporting
] should reflect this reality - no matter what
] anti-abortionists say.
] But what happened next illustrates one reason journalists
] have such a hard time calling it like they see it on
] science issues. In an internal memo exposed by the Web
] site, the Times's editor, John
] Carroll, singled out Gold's story for harsh
] criticism, claiming it vindicated critics who accuse the
] paper of liberal bias.

Reality has a "liberal bias."

In the words of Monty Burns, "Excellent!"
