The Schiavo memo - still an MSM/DNC lie
The left will spend the next four years trying to justify MSM/DNC's bias and Bush hatred by pointing to the Schiavo memo and screaming, "See, we were almost right once! We're not really biased! Halliburton!"
Even though a Republican staff member wrote the memo, MSM/DNC remains guilty of a lie by virtue of its claim that Party "leaders" distributed the memo. The Washington Post has never retracted that claim, a claim which the Post distributed nationwide through its wire service. MSM/DNC will now use the staff member's admitted authorship as a means of obscuring their own role in this matter and their own initial false attribution.
The author of this memo has admitted his authorship and resigned. By contrast, no one affiliated with Rathergate has admitted wrongdoing. Rather and his cohort still hope to prove that the national guard memos are genuine, just as they hope to prove someday that Al Gore won the 2000 election. MSM/DNC 's fallback position, "fake but accurate", threatens to become the new standard for MSM/DNC journalism.
Conservatives has disavowed those responsible for the memo. For example, Michelle Malkin refers to certain sources as "manipulative, lying smear merchants". VandS just says "Idiot." We are still waiting for MSM/DNC to disavow AP, the Pulitzer committee, CBS and every other liar from the growing list of MSM lies of 2005.
