Covering Illegal Wiretapping, The NYT Proves It Can't Be Trusted
...Republicans in the Senate are wrestling with how hard to press the White House for more authority over Mr. Bush's eavesdropping program, seeking a middle ground between Democratic calls for an investigation of the program and White House demands to keep hands off.No they bloody well aren't rebelling. In fact, all the Republican's did was drop to their knees "Monica-style" and say, "Please, Mr. President, how may we service you"! And there's no goddamned "middle-ground" here. The Senate retroactively sanctioned ILLEGAL acts; broadened the window of opportunity for surveilling the innocent by an order of magnitude; And did away with probably cause requirements by allowing congressional oversight to be trumped solely by the Attorney General's word!
What more could the Senate have given away? What greater disservice could the Times do it's readers by suggesting otherwise, and why is the NYT running interference for the Senate?
