Howard Fineman said to Imus this morning "Do you want to know anything other than what the government tells you?"
Avedon has it right: That's what Arthur Silber says - and he's usually a pretty astute observer. I also agree. This is what they have been after all along - to turn the press into nothing more than a propaganda arm of the ultra-right movement.

The Light of Reason is right on.

The Noise Machine by ASZ says: . Blah3.com gets it exactly right - Newsweek should resist all efforts to morph this story into something it's not - a story about Newsweek.

Not one person or entity actually associated with the Bush mis-administration has denied that THE SUBSTANCE OF THE STORY IS CORRECT. You can look it up. But what they're turning the story into is a jihad against Newsweek. Again, as I opined last night, “message sending” to the rest of the media. Let's make no mistake about it - THE SUBSTANCE OF THE STORY IS CORRECT.

Talk Left has a great post on the Newsweek story.
