More Media Whoring

Why can't the media call it like it is.
Excerpt: US President George W. Bush charged Monday that Iran has openly declared that it seeks nuclear weapons -- an inaccurate accusation at a time of sharp tensions between Washington and Tehran.

"It's up to Iran to prove to the world that they're a stabilizing force as opposed to a destabilizing force. After all, this is a government that has proclaimed its desire to build a nuclear weapon," he said during a joint press conference with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

But Iran has repeatedly said that its nuclear program, which is widely believed in the West to be cover for an effort to develop atomic weapons, is for civilian purposes.
The article calls the statement "inaccurate" (which is a polite way to say untrue) but the headline calls the statement "dubious" and the last time I looked up the meaning of the word "dubious", it meant "doubtful". But what he said is an out-and-out lie. There's no doubt it's a lie.

The media is too in cahoots with the powers that be, I just can't read any more of it.
