I’ve already noted the treason of the New York Times and the Legacy Media’s hemorrhaging business stories.
Now we have a naked smear perpetrated by the nervous Washington Post.
Nervous about what?
Simply put, Bill Roggio is doing the job the Legacy Media could do, but will not.
Bill also cites numerous WaPo errors which can lead any fair reader to only one conclusion: They’re frightened and cornered and will do anything to misrepresent their competition hoping their readers are too stupid to see the game.
Here is just one error that a college journalism student would not have made:
I was not credentialed by the American Enterprise Institute. This would be impossible as the needed press credentials must be provided by a media organization. A friend suggested I approach the American Enterprise Magazine, which is a periodical published by the American Enterprise Institute. We were unable to work out an agreement, so I searched for an alternative.
Another friend suggested I contact The Weekly Standard. Richard Starr was happy to help and provided the necessary credentials to embed. Also, Rod Breakenridge of the Canadian talk radio show The World Tonight kindly provided documentation for credentials as well. The two letters allowed me to successfully embed, and there were no questions about my credentials in Baghdad or elsewhere.
Clearly, either WaPo editors are obscenely overpaid, or they simply winked and nodded at this drive-by.
(While I’m sure they are overpaid given the quality of the product, I’m also quite confident there were many eyes-a-winkin’ and heads-a-noddin’. . . .)
More reflections on the fears of Legacy Media.
