    David Gregory is his heir apparent in that respect.

    Their conduct in drumming up support for the IW and constant derision of those protesting against it will go down in history as a very dark time for the US news media.

    The media morphed nearly overnight from National Enquirer-style obsession with faux scandals to an obsession with lying about the Iraq War.  The evidence against the war was so clear, authoritative, so solid that its impossible to give them a pass.  

    It is an old strategy of tyrants to delude their victims into fighting their battles for them. FDR
