More blunt talk

Surprise! In his weekly column yesterday, Al Neuwarth, founder of USA Today, calls Bush a liar and castigates the media for standing by:

The crucial difference between Vietnam and Iraq is that there is no Cronkite to call Bush's bluff. Without a strong, trusted, non-political voice, too many of us remain Bush-blinded. Bush tried keeping the wool over our eyes again Tuesday on national TV by repeatedly tying Iraq to 9/11. That charge is as phony as his discredited prewar claim that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

We're out of the blogosphere now; USA Today is the best-selling daily in the country, claiming daily readership by more than 4.2 million affluent heads of households. Oh yes, and readership peaks on Fridays.

Can't count the number of times I've heard someone say, "Where are Woodward and Bernstein when we need them?" The Downing Street Memos, the manufactured WMD claims, the baseless lies about Iraq and 9.11, and the Plame leak make Monica's dress look like a morning mist on a hot day. Yet none of them seem to get any traction in the MSM.
