chasing down leads

simon owens contacted me about an interview he conducted with glenn greenwald about the abc false anthrax story. please take a moment to hop on over and read it.

“So I asked how people should believe this, given that there’s no way to know where the information is coming from,” Greenwald said. “His basic answer was that Brian Ross and ABC News have reputations for being highly regarded journalistic outlets, so we put our credibility behind the story, and that should lead people to believe that this is credible.”

yep. the msm basically runs a propaganda machine for the white house based on the reputations of men and women of integrity who used to actually report the truth and hold these people accountable. so much for progress.

That's actually a pretty good method for "smelling the truth". Unfortunately for the MSM they're the source of the stench that they themselves smell.
