I just thank the lord that John McCain got the money out of politics.

I don’t think anybody here was inclined to take that seriously, but the fact that Soros is behind it definitely crushes its credibility!

So, the AP needs some competition, why not give it to them?

Better than bitching for another 30 years running.

What? And take all the fun out of having someone to demonize when things are going well? We need to have a bitch and moan factor!

From By Bryan via Hot Air

This AP story should have been labeled a press release. That’s what it amounts to.

A study by two nonprofit journalism organizations found that President Bush and top administration officials issued hundreds of false statements about the national security threat from Iraq in the two years following the 2001 terrorist attacks.

The study concluded that the statements “were part of an orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion and, in the process, led the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses.”

The study was posted Tuesday on the Web site of the Center for Public Integrity, which worked with the Fund for Independence in Journalism.

This late in the war, I’m not even sure why anyone would bother trotting out the “Bush LIED, people DIED” line. If you haven’t bought it by now, you’re not likely to, and if you already buy it, you already buy it. I suppose seeing it in print one more time could be your Daily Affirmation that we’re living in Bushreich’s Amerikkka.

In any case, by stopping the research at 2001, the story is set-up to misreport the facts. The Clinton administration spent years warning the public of the threat of Saddam and his WMD. They even bombed a pharma factory in Sudan on the suspicion that it was making WMD for both al Qaeda and Iraq. So the story either unintentionally or by design left out years of context. Whatever the motivation, it’s clear that the reporter, Douglas K. Daniel, paid no attention to the man behind the curtain. The Center for Public Integrity is one of many George Soros fronts. Soros pays the bills and his minions, whether they happen to work at the CPI or the Center for American Progress or Media Matters or wherever, dance to his tune. And Soros has made it his life’s work to bring down the Bush administration. He says it’s the “central focus of my life.” Do you think people paid to to “research” by a man with that stated mission are likely to deliver unbiased findings?

Douglas K. Daniel either doesn’t know this or didn’t do his due diligence and report the full facts to his readers. Whatever the underlying issues are with his reporting, it’s dishonest to pass off press releases as journalism. He earns a fail.

Bush wasn’t present in 1998 when Clinton started the Iraq War.

I visited my father-in-law a few weeks ago. He’s a “yellow dog democrat”. He started telling me about how Dick Chaney controls the price of crude oil so he can make himself and George Bush rich. I didn’t know how to respond. I couldn’t believe that anyone could be so gullible. These folks don’t ask for any facts or proof, they just repeat any absurd story that someone tells them.

I think the meaning of "Not" here is that the AP didn't disclose the partisan nature of the supposedly independent groups who did this 'study'.

CBS pounded this story all morning. Pity they didn’t do a little digging.
