Bill Moyers Lays It Out. Talking Heads Missing In Action.

At Firedoglake, there is a superb summary of the Bill Moyers PBS program about how the press became Bush's lapdog in the lead-up to the Iraq war. Taking it step by step, Moyers shows how the press missed every opportunity to do any actual investigating of the "evidence" that we needed to go to war. Instead, the media simply offered 24 hour a day talking head opinionators who did little more than talk, talk, talk.

Ironically, few of these talking heads, who cannot WAIT to get on Fox or CNN to act like they "know it all," were available to be interviewed by Moyers. They only want to be on TV when they can be seen as experts. Not when an actual journalist is asking questions.
