Too Late

It seems to be much too late to bring sanity back to news reporting. As I said earlier, news agencies like the AP have no intention to report reality, but rather their own politically-motivated versions.

It seems that congress wants Joe Wilson's wife to testify before congress about her role in the entire "I'm Joe Wilson and I'm a liar but you told everyone that my wife is a non-secret CIA agent and so someone has to go to jail even when no crime was committed" scandal, and the AP decides to start off their article like this:

Valerie Plame, the CIA operative exposed after her husband criticized President Bush's march to war, will testify next week before lawmakers probing how the White House dealt with her identity, the chairman of the panel said Thursday.

Mind-numbing. It hurts my head to think that the AP is still passing along the fantasy that Valerie Plame was a covert agent, and that she was exposed because her husband decided to lie to the Senate Intelligence Committee. Insane. Sadly, it matters little what the reality of the situation is, the AP reports the "truth" and this truth is slowly becoming history.
