  •  I watched Cheney (0+ / 0-)

    for a few minutes on CBS. As he was defending the warrantless spying (completely legal of course) he discussed the agreement reached with Congress.
    He said they'd increase the number of congress members who had oversight from two, which it has been, to 7.

    Aha. I waited for him to be called on that. As usual he lied on a fact that anyone could know is a lie. The congress people who have been "informed" are not being increased from 2 to 7, but decreased from 8 to 7. And of course they will have no real oversight.

    But he wasn't called on that at all. Instead they shined his shoes, kissed him and gave him chocolates. OK, now I am lying but they may as well have. None of his statements were questioned, none of his lies challenged. he got to give his spiel and they thanked him.

    And why isn't Feingold on every show?

      that I could not - should not - watch that interview.

      Unless someone - a real journalist (are there any left) would pounce all over this like a bulldog - and keep asking and asking and asking

      oh well - we know that journalism as we knew it is dead.

      We have gone from Woodward of Watergate -
      to Woodward Bush-butt-kisser/Woodward-Bush-enabler.
