Rather Than Looking Forward

John in Carolina looks back at Rathergate and traces that debacle with Rather's latest tearful claim that there is a "climate of fear" in newsrooms. Sometimes we forget how desperate the MSM has become in spinning to damage Bush, but John's links freshen up our memory.

The N&O again joins the shameful story creation business by running this headline from an AP story: Bush's words on Iraq echo LBJ. Evidence presented in the story - both men said "we shall stay the course." Groundbreaking news reporting there. Must be that the attack-Bush-on-Katrina approach, or the attack-Roberts-as-being-too-conservative lines are bearing no fruit.
