Speaking Of Liars....
Moveon.org is issuing orders to its Digital Brownshirt brigade.:
You know Bush went on TV four days after the briefing and said, "I don't think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees."
Well, as it turns out, many actual reporters covering this story for papers across the nation missed this crucial point entirely—helping Bush to get away with a lie. Please help us ensure your local paper gets it right.
Please check your local paper online today, and contact them if they didn't report Bush's lie.
As usual, they know Bush didnt lie. They are playing the 'ignorant card'.
Here are some basic definitions regarding levees that The Left ISNT REPORTING:
Topping: water flowing over a levee
Breaching: failure of levee, a collapse
Max Mayfield, by video in the August 28 video conference: "I don't think anybody can tell you with any confidence right now whether the levees will be topped or not, but that's obviously a very, very grave concern."
Lisa Myers of NBC, one of the few who reported THE FACTS:
Myers: "Today Mayfield told NBC News that he warned only that the levees might be topped, not breached, and that on the many conference calls he monitored, 'nobody talked about the possibility of a levee breach or failure until after it happened.'
In fact, senior White House officials asked Louisiana Governor Blanco how the levees are holding up."
Governor Kathleen Blanco (D-LA), audio from August 29: "We keep getting reports in some places that maybe water is coming over the levees. We've heard a report unconfirmed. I think we've heard that we have not breached the levee. We have not breached the levee at this point in time."
Myers: "We now know that an hour before Blanco's assessment, a FEMA official alerted superiors to reports that at least one levee had failed, information which didn't reach the White House until almost midnight. Lisa Myers, NBC News, New Orleans."
Why is it so necessary for The Left to consistently misrepresent the entire story? Who are the liars here? Only NBC and FOX reported the entire story.
