Liberal Media Taking It On The Chin Over Iraq

Now that I think about it, this is the second time in the last twelve months that a liberal media outlet has been spanked publicly because it couldn't restrain it's bias. Let's not forget the BBC and the Hutton report from a year ago.

Lord Hutton has been looking into the events surrounding the death of David Kelly, who was found dead in July -- days after he was exposed as the source for a BBC report that Blair's office "sexed up" a dossier making the case for war.

In a statement before his report was released, Hutton said BBC reporter Andrew Gilligan's story that the dossier had been "sexed up" was "unfounded."

He said BBC management had failed to properly check Gilligan's story and did not properly investigate the government's complaints about it.

The publicly funded broadcaster's director-general Greg Dyke later apologized for the report and a spokesperson said Chairman Gavyn Davies had resigned.

The media's hatred of the Iraq war and the politicians that have pursued it has cost more media honchos their jobs than government officials. I'm sure the MSM is keeping score and will look to get even at some point.
