Responsibility

Digby:

I have one question for the media. Why is everyone so impressed that Bush is taking responsibility for going into Iraq? Has there ever been any question about that? We know he made the decision. He has made a fetish of taking responsibility for doing it. indeed, we watched him do it in defiance of virtually the whole world and half the country. This is not an admission of a mistake.

Likewise, admitting that there were no WMD is like admitting that the sun came up this morning. It's true, yes, but saying it is not "candor" --- it's stating the obvious.

Saying that the intelligence was wrong is not taking responsibility for getting it wrong. We know it was wrong.

i think they're not impressed so much as they're relieved. they can finally stop reporting negatively and go back to submitting questions for approval. this whole business of doing anything resembling journalism is not what gets them invited back, you know. and if they don't get invited back, how can they get the good inside info to put in their books?
