Will The Politico offer an explanation? Doubt it.

So we have very good reason to suspect that Gerstein may well be a paid adviser to Lieberman. Incidentally, even if Gerstein is merely a current unpaid adviser to Lieberman, The Politico should have identified him as such when it published his attack on some of Lieberman's key political rivals.

Read the article and if you agree with Greg, email The Politico. I called them for comment, but was transfered to voice mail.

Update by Silent Patriot:

Anatomy of a Politico Distortion:

First Politico characterizes the Murtha/Pelosi plan with the inflammatory term "slow bleed." Then the GOP and right wing puppets pick up on it and, boom!, the Democrats' New Official Strategy is "Slow Bleed." Then FOX News (and soon after, CNN and MSNBC) reinforce the myth, always failing to mention that the plan actually protects the troops by ensuring they're properly rested and equipped before entering battle.

Two days later, Politico admits they made up the term, but that doesn't matter. Already a Google search for 'Murtha slow bleed strategy' yields 160,000 hits -- mostly all distortions of the plan, still attributing the term "slow bleed" to Murtha and Pelosi.
