we take back what we said about the gray lady...

sure, the nytimes gave bob harris a good review for "prisoner of trebekistan," but that doesn't mean, apparently, that they've started actually reporting.

via our buddy jane at fdl, who checked in w/media matters, we find a blatant piece of laziness posing as reporting in the esteemed pages of that mmm organ:

meanhile, the times' effort to spread lieberman propaganda continues unabated. after what they claim was an "exhaustive" search, they leap to joe's defense with this conclusion:

never, in the statements reviewed, did mr. lieberman utter the words 'stay the course.
which is, of course, the new republican lie du jour — george w. bush has been making the rounds with the same claim. fortunately, there is media matters, who finds this lieberquote from fox news sunday:

we can do better. i will do better. i will make it international. i will stay the course, and i'll create a stable, democratizing, modernizing iraq, which would be a tremendous step forward in the middle east and the islamic world and in our war against terrorism.
and then there's this, from the hartford courant:

"i thought the president gave the strongest case that i can remember him giving about why we went in and why we have to stay the course," lieberman said.
fox news & friends:

"we want to not only stay the course; we want to achieve victory."
etc etc etc. we could provide more, but then you wouldn't go read jane and media matters.

well, at least they liked bob!

addendum: apropos of nothing, here's a good example of how bloggered blogger can get. we wrote this post twice, because the first time it disappeared.

suddenly it reappeared here, under monday's postings, complete with the last paragraph suddenly morphing into spanish.

blogger: you get what you pay for.
