02/11/2005:"Gunnin' For Gannon"
It's more than a little annoying (as Terry pointed out here) when we learn about how any administration is manipulating the media. But it's even more annoying to know that a goofy but respected old geezer like Dan Rather (get your "Ratherisms" here) is skewered for an honest mistake, while a guy who:
1.) Lies about his background 2.) Gets a White House press pass 3.) Is privy to C.I.A. documents that ruin a woman's career (and endanger her life) And 4.) Seems to own domains like "hotmilitarystud.com", "militaryescorts.com", and "militaryescortsm4m.com";
gets softballs like this from CNN, or this from the NYT, while blogs like MediaCitizen are digging up stuff like this. The only major news site I've found that's giving it thorough coverage is the Washington Post. Anybody seen more on this?
