When the media drank W's Kool-Aid

PBS will air a scorching 90-minute documentary tonight in which Bill Moyers shows how the so-called liberal media played lapdog to the Bush administration in the dishonest run-up to the distastrous war in Iraq.

This is counterintuitive, of course, to the stereotype of the media painted by the zanies on the political right. Accordingly, some of them, like this guy and this guy, are soiling themselves in angst over Moyers' report.

Oh, by the way, another phony stereotype peddled by the rightists is that the insistence by Harry Reid and the Democrats in Congress to set a timetable for withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq is somehow out of sync with the thinking of truly patriotic Americans.

But consider, if you will, the opinions of this gang of retired generals.
