Newsweek Folds

Whenever I hear Scott McClellan talking about ‘media credibility,’ I strain to remember who it was who admitted Jeff Gannon to the White House press room and called on him all those times.

Whenever I hear this White House talking about ‘doing to damage to our image abroad’ and how ‘people have lost lives,’ I strain to remember who it was who went traipsing into Iraq looking for WMD that will apparently turn up just after the Holy Grail will - and at what human cost.

It was inevitable. Newsweek was brave for a short time but they folded to the White House onslaught. They retracted their Koran in the toilet story and now they have been Rathered by the right wing. Keith Olbermann has the story.
