A Little Late

As with most malfeasance by the MSM, the apology usually comes a little too late. Newsweek is the latest to run an irresponsible article in the "blame America first" vein that seems to have infected the left. Only this time, instead of wounding the reputation of the target (the Bush administration), people died due to editorial irresponsibility.

And remember all of the breathless front page articles in the N&O and other papers several years ago about the details of meetings VP Cheney held with energy experts to craft energy policy? The papers have buried the articles now that a judge has ruled that the VP can meet in private to craft policy. The judge's decision seemed pretty obvious in the first place, but at the time the left was trying to get any traction it could, and Cheney looked like a good target.
