Valid news organization? Like the left wing kooks at CBS, NBS, NY times, etc? Oh Puhleez! They're the ones that aren't "valid"
Lots of people write under an assumed name, hon. Grow up.
You wrote he was in the press area under an assumed name. How do you know that? You don't think the FBI knows his REAL name? Naive, naive, naive.
Apparently Milbank's position at the post is nothing more than the "Bush Hate" desk.
I hear Tony Blankley is next on their "isolate and obliterate" target list.
DailyKos and allies have found a genuine THERAPY FOR PEST SUFFERERS! Attack Republicans on scurious charges, have pals threaten them. This tactic galvanizes the liberal base. Remember the Scream? It's the "attack" cry.
I understand exactly what is being said. There is zero evidence Gannon received anything more than other WH corps members. I hope you understand that.
the fact is the WSJ piece predates Gannon's Wilson interview by at least 10 days.
At President Bush's press conference yesterday, ABC News (search) reporter Terry Moran (search) described the case of a Jordanian activist, Ali Hattar, who Moran said had been arrested and charged with slander for promoting a boycott of U.S. goods. Moran called it an "abuse of human rights," and invited the President to condemn it, saying, "If you won't, sir, then what ... do your fine words [about freedom] mean?"
Then it was send in the clowns time as the media started asking their questions. It wasn't so much a question and answer period as it was an interrogation. First question? How could Bush be so wrong about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and how could he take us to war on false premises? Straight out of the liberal playbook. At the beginning of the war in Iraq John Kerry had the same view on WMDs as did George Bush; ditto for the United Nations and most of Europe. To hear the media tell it there was only one person in the world last March who felt that Saddam Hussein had stockpiles of WMDs, and that person was George Bush. Then, we had the question that Bush would not answer...and it was priceless, because they tried more than once. Does the president feel any personal responsibility for 9/11? The first question that comes to mind is whether or not it is even appropriate for a reporter to demand apologies from the president at a presidential news conference? But ... ask the question they did.
I will note that the reporters, Allen and Milbank, mention "CIA officials" disputing the memo and its contents. Unfortuantely, their source was either a poor one or a lying one (I pick the latter) as the memo surfaced and was precisely as described and Plame did attend the meeting.
Ping to #147 for the actual WaPo article and my comments about it.
(This example happens to be from DD1879 -- the form for background investigations up to Top Secret.)
Don't tell the idiots at dailyKOS, though -- let them go crazy chasing their own tails!! LOL!!
I think we can help lay this story to rest by pointing out as many softball questions from MSM for the Fornicator in Chief as we can. I can't find anything thru Google-- how about it guys? Anyone got old transcripts from Cigar-boy's press conferences?
It's a Secret Service responsibility, not FBI. And you have made my point. The SS/White House did know, and they aided in the cover up. On the other hand, there is no secret about Jerry Rivers.
Between this and the bribed columnists, there needs to be a bit of pruning in the White House press office.
He ought to jerk ALL of their press passes and then hand them back on an individual basis after having someone have a talk with them so they understand that they WILL maintain decorum in the White House or they will be escorted off the property.
My goodness, this is as despicable as the attack on the SoD for using an autopen.
See post 121 addressed to me.
What did the White House press office have to do with the "bribed" columnists?;
Sounds like something democrat senator Frank Lautenberg would ask. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1340582/posts
Actually, I didn't say that they did have anything to do with bribing the columnists, but I see how you could have reached that conclusion from my juxtaposition of the two issues. I'll try to be more precise in my writing in the future.
I wasn't alive during the era of McCarthy, but from what I have heard---the black lists and all, this sounds like McCarthyism, where this guy is "run out of town" because of his political party, not his journalistic credentials---
You left a key one off of your list of pen names. And it must be Bush's fault because it involved crime and corruption, bank scandal, and a Texas governmental office (but his apologists will try to make an issue out of the fact that it all occured before Bush was born.)

And, of course, after he was exposed and did his time in federal prison, he took refuge in New York City.
