Typical media on any story that turns out to be false. They scream the wrong story from the heavens and when it turns out it they were wrong they act like nothing happened.

Thanks AB, Congrats to top 3 winners & Good Morning to EveryOne!

Fuuny, Powell & Armitage were the heroes during President's 1st term. Now, we understand why. Dictionary could add another meaning for Betrayal, ie., Powell & Armitage.

Way back in 2004 Benetto wrote the following, so he knows why it's so important for the follow-up Armitage story to be discussed and reported.



http://www.usatoday.com/news/opinion/columnist/benedetto/2004-07-18-benedetto_x.htm

2 excerpted quotes:

"""Wilson's charges, embraced by Democrats and publicized far and wide by a news media all too willing to believe the worst about Bush, were given great credence because Wilson was the man chosen by the CIA to investigate the suspected Iraqi effort.

By his concluding that the Iraqi uranium-buying attempt was pure fiction, it gave critics of the war in Iraq one more chance to call Bush a liar and say he took the United States into battle under false pretenses."""



""

But now that the Wilson case has been debunked, it is interesting to note that the news media, so eager to build him up, and tear Bush down, now seem reluctant to tell the rest of the story, or at least the next chapter. Wilson, who had been a fixture on television, now seems to have disappeared. Democrats are silent.

Why were the media so willing to believe Wilson when he was an obvious Democratic partisan? He not only worked for the National Security Council in the Clinton White House, he also is a foreign policy adviser to the Democratic presidential campaign of John Kerry. Why, indeed?"""

Benedetto just said it's a non issue outside the beltway.

Ha! What was the whole past three years of Dem and DBM outrage, then? From this whole story we get:

1. Bush lied (16 words in the 2003 SOTU speech) per Joe Wilson
2. The White House Outed a CIA Top Secret agent to stifle critics and punish poor Joe Wilson
3. We simply must have a special prosecutor to look into this abuse by the Administration
4. Carl Rove was periodically moments away from indictment for two years
5. Scooter Libby goes to jail for perjury

Now, cover the above points for thousands and thousands of hours on various television "News" shows, especially our Sunday shows. Throw in one of the Sunday shows hosts (Russert) who was part of the scam....(difference between Fitzgerald's phone interview with Russert and Libby's sworn testimony, for example) and then they state it's only an "inside the Beltway" issue?

Couldn't ONE of these shows bring in Joe Wilson this weekend?

LOL! You know they could but will not, as doing so will make them (including Darlin' Joe) out to be the liars and moonbats they are.

How's that for fair, non-biased coverage of the issues of our day? They'll tell ya to your face that they're not biased. Honest!

Funny, Mathews booked Colin Powell for on 9/11. First he was elsewhere on a remote part of the world that day. I am surprised he would appear with a straight face although Mathews will try his best to paint him as the angel.

Colin Powell and Armitage should be raked over the coals today. But to do so would involve mocking the MSM elite...like Chris Matthews...for being so wrong for so long.

They weren't "wrong." They got caught. Numerous people right here at FR with none of the connections these people have had this figured out from the beginning. The DBM absolutely KNEW Wilson was a liar and this was a manufactured "scandal." What they did they did with knowledge and intent.

:-) Good morning, Bahbah!

Even worse, it was Corn who promoted the conspiracy theory in the beginning. Commentary about the new revelations incude the observation that Armitage's role does not fit neatly into the conspiracy charges.

This is like the quality award given to the individuals who moved heaven and earth to fix a problem which they created themselves.

LOL

Colin Powell has lawyered up. I think that the worst of it is that Powell was supposed to be a friend of W and withheld information. Some friend.

He has hurt Scooter Libby, the Vice President and the President for no apparent reason other than to cover for Armitage. Gosh, in the dreaded private sector, you let your boss know about things that may/will/did go wrong and to do what you have to do to clean up the mess and prevent it from recurring. Instead, it looks like the act of someone who had an axe to grind.

What they did they did with knowledge and intent.

Absolutely!!!! Stated simply and powerfully!

They knew a along. Do you think this explains why the President agreed so readily to a special prosecutor, thinking he'd let them put their money where their mouths where?

The DNC-DBM is a powerful force, still. Let's keep chipping away at their credibility!

See my NEW tag line!

FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): Sens. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., Elizabeth Dole, R-N.C., and Arlen Specter, R-Pa.; Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs.

So is Joe Gibbs supposed to be the real Republican on the show, or just the conservative? I didn't know Mr. Gibbs expressed political opinions.

>>.....they're hiding it because they were... complicit.<<
-I would like to see Tony Snow pushing this fact in their faces, but the WH again seems passive and lost in defending its own. I thought Tony would help with matters like this, but the entire GOP-- not to mention a lot of Freepers-- seem to brush Plame/Wilson/MSM attempted coup aside as old news, rather than screaming from tall buildings that this three year fiasco was the most atrocious media witch hunt in history. Matthews, Russert and the rest should be held accountable and mocked relentlessly until they do so.

He wasn't alone there. I'd read that the leftwing groundswell against Bolton was predicated on Bolton's earlier warnings (unheeded the reality of sending forces to Iraq loomed) against Iran (also conveniently offered the same nuclear package as North Korea by 42).

I was interviewed last week by the local yokel paper. Y'all might be interested because I think I did a darn good job going round and round with the interviewer.

Note that bit about how I "affectionately" refer to the Old Media as the "Lamestream" media. Heh. There's no affection involved.

Also has a picture of me should anyone care.

Anyway, good morning AB, all. Labor day weekend is soooo boring for political junkees, eh?

Same goes for Fox. We all prayed for Fox's Centanni. But after his release, that 's the end of respect for him.

Isn't it strange that Centanni, who said he "converted" only because he had a gun to his head, felt the need to be apologetically politically correct by expressing the "highest respect for Islam"?

Here 's Cliff May.

Centanni and Wiig continue to emphasize that their experience should not discourage news organizations from covering Gaza, from "telling the story of the Palestinian people...Come and tell the story. It's a wonderful story," Centanni said. Is the mission of Fox's London bureau to tell the "wonderful story" of the British people?

Do reporters cover the White House in order to tell the "wonderful story" of George W. Bush? This is patronizing and it's pandering. Journalism and public relations are both respectable professions. But there is a difference between them. When dealing with violent groups in the Middle East do journalists somehow seem to forget this.

Good tagline. Thinking about what Powell has done here makes me more and more angry...and worried for my country. I think he allowed this to go on when he could have put a stop to it specifically in order to damage the President and his Administration...in a time of war, no less. That is stabbing the country in the back. And this guy was chairman of the Joint Chiefs. Think about that. He would allow his country to be damaged for his own political purposes and he was the military head of our armed forces. Now he is one of McCain's elite advisors in his presidential campaign along with Armitage.

What did McCain know and when did he know it????
