    The media follows Rove's plan; they repeat without discerning the validity of statements.

    Repeat a lie often enough... and people will believe that the Clinton staff upon leaving the White House 8 years ago shucked all the "W"'s off of keyboards...

    In particular, CNN seems to be most lax about reporting accurately. I once had respect for Wolf Blitzer until I noticed he became the Bushies' parrot.

    I spend hours and hours reading about debunkings... hours and hours of reading actual reports... CNN is again repeating a lie; it's the way they are today. Their idea of reporting is actually regurgitating.

    Great factual investigation and substantiating of facts in the original post; thank you!

    What is this I hear of sorrow and weariness, Anger, discontent and drooping hopes... Life is too strong for you-- It takes life to love Life

      f, eh?

      On-air 'personalities' are just that, blow dried Barbies and Kens hired for looks and 'bubbly'.  Rather than be honest with them, though, the media treats them like real reporters.  But, if they were real, they'd use those huge pretty melons they call heads and investigate before bloviating.

      But, then again, there is 24 hours air to fill, so don't hold your breath.
