We now know that the press was lying - flat-out, bald-faced lying - when they expressed concerns that the "outing" of Valerie Plame had compromised national security and that leaks which compromise national security are unconscionable. I repeat, they were lying, day in and day out. The Pulitzer prizes for the wiretapping story and the secret prison story prove without a doubt that the news media care not a whit for national security, about illegal leaks, or anything other than their own political agendas.
Steve, thanks for the short summary of the massive lies and spins put out by the NY Slimes to bash President Bush since 2000.
Anything goes when it comes Bush Bashing. If the writers are creative enough in their Bush Bashing, they might win a Bush Bashing Pulitzer!
