Media To Blame For Iraq Loss?

-- by Dave Johnson

As predicted the Right is starting to look for the scapegoat for the loss in Iraq. Kevin Drum writes about Instapundit blaming the media. (Instapundit is the top-traffic right-wing blog, but does not allow readers to post comments.) The comments to kevin's post are what is interesting:

But damn it, if the chickenhawks had just gone and fought...we'd have won easily, right?..

So..we never had enough troops..chickenhawks did not support the war with enlistment..draw your conclusions..


He is the "media" for f***s sake!

I don't know why anyone would have a quibble with this particular bit of instapunditry. If Karl Rove has anything to do with it, a lot of people undoubtedly will blame the media.

It's not like Bush is going to stand up and accept responsibility for his own actions.


I blame the media for the loss. Without a media assist, Bush would never have had his war on at all.
