Proof the Media Lied

Mary, over at Freedom Eden has written a definitive post about the truth of the Karl Rove "non issue". Apparently, she has discovered proof that this was a sheer fabrication perpertrated by the press to villify Karl Rove and President Bush. Not only did they make up the charges, they did it intentionally in spite of the fact they knew already what the facts in the case were. She has found the actual brief that the news organizations filed in court in behalf of Matthew Cooper and Judith Miller wherein they admit to knowing when and by whom Valerie Plame was "outed".

But don't take my word for it, go to her site and see for yourself. If you don't understand the legalese in the brief, read her post. She will explain it to you.

I don't expect the die hard extreme left wing liberals to believe any if this, of course. They have long since made up their minds. But those of you who have a sense of fairness will appreciate knowing the truth.

Shocking! Not really. Post-Rathergate none of it surprises me. I think that because they realize that so much of politics is about PR and perception, they don't really care that this is not true.

The effect they hope it has is to essentially render President Bush and his leadership team impotent. Why? So that they could continue to attack him relative to the war and the Supreme Court nominations.

By the way, thanks for the encouraging words on my blog :)

This has been such a non-story, I've tried to ignore it. It's pushed by the media, and I care to fill my head with focusing on things that matter. Thanks for linking though. Unfortunately, it is a big story, but only because it's been made into one by old media, liberals, and Democrats scraping the bottom of the barrel for anything they can find to hurt President Bush.

Maybe Karl Rove should resign or being fired. If so, our best hope is that the Democrats will be so busy patting each other on the back over their "victory" over Karl Rove that Bush will be able to sneak a conservative judge onto the Supreme court before they can mount a full filibuster.

Mark, I think I said, or alluded to, something very similar to that the other day, here or somewhere else (maybe over at my house, I don't recall).

Dubya shoulda cut Karl loose days ago. He has served his purpose. The Dems smell blood and are going to have someone's head.

For y'allses' side, wouldn't it be better to get 'em all distracted with a hollow victory? Because yer right: The president, then, would have a freer hand to nominate a righty for SCOTUS -- especially after taking such pains to recognize the Senate's "advise and consent" duties -- which appear to be driven our buddy Tugboat nuts. :-)

Y'all need to get off "the media," BTW. Sure, they're out of control -- but so is about every other part of the system, ain't it?

I'd rather hear it all, knowing I'm getting good old American bias and good old American shallowness than to not get any infotainment at all.

Besides that, the "media" has dogged every president since the beginning, especially in a second term!
