Media in Glass House Shouldn't Throw......

Call it the year of Lame Reporting.

This post is a take off on this article blaming the Bush adminstration for everything except teenage acne.

Fact is that for ANYONE in the MSM to even try to write an article like this is lame enough, as if it was the banner year for the MSM....NOT, but to miss their multiple screwups in the process is well, so, MSM!

Since most of the article's venom is pointed at the Federal Response of Katrina - although I'm still waiting on some really tough reporting on idiot Nagin and Kathleen (got my water bottle where's yours?) Blanco to appear - Let's review how THEY did during the disaster!

Fact is that the MSM blew Kartina story big time. I mean as covering stories go, you couldn't have covered it worse or more incompetantly than media.

Although, we're still waiting for all the corrections to come in, much less the apologies to both the President and the Nation, nonetheless, most of what we still see is compete denial for the most part and outright arrogance overall.

Yet some of the media has been less than flattering...

For instance:

"The New York Times at the time Katrina was front page news hailed CNN's Anderson Cooper as "an anchor who reports disaster news with a heart on his sleeve". Strange praise for a reporter pledged to provide facts.

Last week, though, the Times busted many of the Cooper fables, from the chain of botched aid it was far more complicated than "Bush did it" because of America's three-government federal system to the allegedly "violence-ridden" Superdome.

And Maj Ed Bush of the Louisiana National Guard, who was there, told the Los Angeles Times in retrospect: "What I saw in the Superdome was just tremendous amounts of people helping people." In other words, no violence at all, in what was certainly a hellhole.

Remember the stacks of corpses at the Superdome, where failed officials didn't take food? There were six deaths, of natural causes, none the result of violence."

And who could forget Aaron Broussard's tearful outburst, shown September 4th on Meet the Press? Which was also later discovered to be an act.

Then there were the false stories which caused people - American's - to die. Such as the Newsweek fake Koran story. We've yet to see Newsweek fire anyone (hint: Isokoff) for this disaster. Instead we were treated to Rathergate excuses.

Ask me, it's been a pretty damn lame year for the MSM, they should talk. By the way, I'm still asking for nominations for the Top Ten Media Lies for 2005!

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

Monday Morning Intelligence with Kool Aid and the NY Times - UPDATE

Followup to previous post.

NY Times: 9/11 Commission's Staff Rejected Report on Early Identification of Chief Hijacker

Ok, I've been on the phone now for...oh, about three days, to some old chums in Tampa, checking this story out, asking questions,...etc. So far what I've heard is that IF this story is true, then those who are really in the know in the Intel world are feeling like a bunch of little red-hair step-childred.

Ed. Morissey is ready to hang the 911 Commission out to dry......mmm,

Ed, not so fast my friend.

Again, I am amazed at the vercacity the NY Times and AP is getting on this story, and from the same conservative bloggers who are normally parsing every "dot and tittle" the Times puts out. Who would think?...

Yeah, there is a lot of "anger" because of "Gorelick" fever where the blogshere and conservative media rightfully called attention to her conflict of interest while serving on the commission. But we can't let the "gotc…
