Media Non-Failure

After the href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/05/27/AR2008052703679.html">release
of Scotty McClellan’s book,  What Happened: Inside
the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception
,
there was a big media/blogosphere splash about the supposed failure of
the media to examine critically the Administration’s case for the war
against Iraq.  There have been href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rachel-haimowitz/master-media-manipulation_b_105529.html">accusations,
href="http://wcbstv.com/politics/couric.iraq.coverage.2.734446.html">mea
culpas
, and href="http://rawstory.com/news/2008/Wolf_Blitzer_defends_CNN_preIraq_war_0529.html">denials.
 

Perhaps someone else has mentioned it already, but if so, I have not
seen it.  There is a reason the mainstream media acted as they
did.  It was not a failure at all.

No, the purpose of the mainstream media is to make money.  For
the media, war equals profit.  That’s all there is to it.
 There was no vast conspiracy, no dereliction of duty.
 Just money.

    “no dereliction of duty”

    There was a dereliction of duty by those who consider themselves, and hold themselves out as, professional journalists, as they grossly violated some of the most basic principles of journalistic ethics.

    Ann voting for HRC makes more sense than a progressive voting for Ron Paul or McCain.

    FWIW
