WaPo on Shitty Pre-War Reporting: Oops, Our Bad

An examination of the paper’s coverage, and interviews with more than a dozen of the editors and reporters involved, shows that The Post published a number of pieces challenging the White House, but rarely on the front page.

There was an attitude among editors: Look, we’re going to war, why do we even worry about all this contrary stuff?

I feel like Ellen Ripley throwing Burke against the wall and saying Burke do you have any idear what you’ve done here?

And yes, that’s the one moment when Sigourney Weaver’s Yale School of Drama training slips and she says idear instead of idea

    Sigh. It seems shameful that once a country is at war, opinions that question governments behavior gets relagated to the back pages.
