If You Lie about Lies, Does that Make It the Truth?

It' s still shocking to me that Dick Cheney can be wrong calling people dishonest and reprehensible since if anyone should know what those words mean, it's the Vice President.

The good news is that media, finally, isn't buying it. Tonight on All Things Considered a segment with national security correspondent Jackie Northam begins with this priceless exchange:

Michele Norris: "President Bush and Vice President Cheney have been saying Congress had access to the same intelligence that they had in the lead up to the war. Is that in fact correct?"

Northam: "No, it's not."

Knight-Ridder also chimed in today with a story headlined: "In challenging war's critics, administration tinkers with truth."

What is this world coming to? It only takes 5 years of mendacity from the powers-that-be for the media to catch on.
