The Goose's Gander

This is from the "paper of record," the old gray lady, all the news that's fit to print, aka. The New York Times:
This is where things stand nearly three weeks after Russia invaded Georgia and radically upended ties with the West: Russian troops still occupy key areas, including the port of Poti; Moscow has recognized the independence of Georgia’s two breakaway regions; Georgia’s president, Mikheil Saakashvili, is still talking tough even though his army is routed and his country shattered.
From the outset, the very first line is WRONG. Saakashvili instigated the bombing in South Ossetia, not Russia. Russia did not invade Georgia, Georgia, for all intents and purposes, invaded Russia and Russia fought back.

And they wonder why they're losing customers to the blogs.

Yeah, well, what else is new(s)?
I wrote NPR about 10 days ago to complain about the interview they had with that guy Talbott from Brookings. The interviewer was so obsequious and never once did he correct Talbott to say it was Georgia that had invaded South Ossetia. All I got was a pat/form email response from National Propaganda Radio!

I can't believe I used to believe them all.
