The following Daily Show video encapsulates how the media's "Journalists" did their job before & for the Iraq War...
Senate Intelligence Report - Number Two
Phase 2 of the Senate's report on whether the Bush administration manipulated intelligence to go to war finally comes out and man, is it worth the wait. (04:24):
1:47 - 'IN going to war, the administration did not say stuff supported by the facts and said things they knew were lies'
1:50 "There's a Headline: Government Misled Us Into War" Jon Stewart
3:30 - Stated that the report said the the Bush-Cheney administration misled us about the connections of Saddam Hussein to Al-Qaeda ... and the whole Iraq War (this should have led to a through media investigation)
With all the deaths during the Iraq War based on lies and the 4 deaths in Benghazi with constant fake reports to back it up... makes me wonder if the right only listens to it's authorized news channel because they are in love with the anchors!
OK. Here is the background of the Iraq War report (it had bi-partisan support):
A REPUBLICAN WAS INVOLVED IN PREPARING THE REPORT
A DEMOCRAT FROM VIRGINIA WAS INVOLVED IN PREPARING THE REPORT AS WELL
Given the bi-partisan support of the report.... here are the headlines that ACTUALLY were on the news Channels...
THESE ARE THE ACTUAL HEADLINES ON CABLE NEWS CHANNEL WEBSITES WHEN THE IRAQ WAR LIES WERE EXPOSED
ON CNN: HOME FORECLOSURES
TOP STORIES IN THE US: LESBIANS KISSING!
THESE WERE THE BIG THREE FOR THE "LEFT" IN 2008
ABC ON THE DAY OF THE SENATE INTELLIGENCE REPORT... A FRENCH SPIDER MAN (HEY! AT LEAST THEY LET GO OF THE "FREEDOM FRIES" THING!)
CBS DID A REPORT ON WEB GOSSIP... WHICH WASN'T EVEN NEWS BACK THEN.
MSNBC DID CARRY THE SENATE INTELLIGENCE REPORT FOR A FEW MINUTES & THEN NOT ANOTHER WORD.
Media still hasn't set the record straight so you find Jon Stewart mocking the media from time to time about their Iraq War's continuing conver-up and the media continues to ignore him. I covered it here;
He said it again a week later and it is covered here;
