MSM: Truth to Power, my ass ...
I spent the entire time during nightly news, thinking Rep. John Murtha (The Democrat Defense Hawk) was coming out now with his doubts and opposition. How could I not? The big three stated it as did LNH!
The MSM: Reinforcing their dismal reputation, driving mistrust higher and sending me again to the blogosphere to get the truth. (But don't question their patriotism. -Ed.)
Update: (Back) Gateway Pundit has a round-up of the "normally quite" Rep. John Murtha, who after long deliberation, I'm sure, finally came to the conclusion he did Thursday which so impressed the MSM. What
And a quite respectful Mudville Gazette helps Rep. John Murtha with some of his "facts" among some other things. MG is a nice guy.
I was bothered by Murtha's Iraqi opinions facts. Just started looking but I did remember an Iraq the Model summary of Al-Sabah (May 5, 2005) opinion poll with the question "What is the task Jafari's government has to handle first?" Where was "Getting the foreign troops out?" Third place at 4.97%. First place at 55.16% was "Providing Security." Still looking for something more definitive and recent.
More: There was this May 18, 2005 summary of a late 2004 poll, but of all the questions asked, none related to getting the troops out. Maybe it was too hot an issue to inquire about.
