Why Did They Run The Story?

Day to Day has an interview with Doyle McManus of The Los Angeles Times about the decision to run the story about tracking financial transactions.

The bottom line for the newspaper was they don’t trust this administration to tell them the truth, and don’t believe that there is any other way of providing oversight of what the government is doing. The Congress has abdicated its duty to monitor what the Executive is doing, so the press has an obligation to tell people what is going on with their government.

“Trust Me” doesn’t cut it any more.

Well, it’s about time that some in the media stand up to the Bush Administration.

I think that the MSM has been asleep long enough, don’t you?

Van, they had better start acting like a free press or they are going to be required to accept government censors.
