Keeping the meme alive

As an introduction to an interview with Joe Scarborough, Today ran a brief news 'recap' of the Plame leak and the investigation of Patrick Fitzgerald. Can't tell the players without a program you know...

It was very reminiscent of something I'd seen before, but that's not entirely the point. What is the point is that it was yet another in a long string of Big Media reports that don't tell the whole story.

It assumed that Bush's SOU mention in 2003 of Niger was based on the infamous forged docs, regardless of the fact that it was sourced to another independent piece of intel. One that the British government still stands behind.

Further, there was no mention of the fact that the eminent Mr. Wilson proclaimed that he'd de-bunked the aforementioned forged docs, even though his trip to Niger occurred a full 8 months before anyone in the administration even heard of the documents at all. No mention that he lied about how he was appointed for the trip in the first place.

All in all, a fine piece of no-perspective reporting.
