Dan Rather update
Blackfive and Dean are talking about the not-very-patriotic behavior of Dan Rather and CBS on Abu Ghraib, discussed here a few days ago. Kaus is also talking about this issue--specifically the decision to publish the photos of the abuse.
Journalists are political actors-- they need to understand this, and we need to understand this. American reporters who slant their stories to make American soldiers look weak and the occupation seem cruel need to know that they share in the guilt when things go badly for American soldiers and contractors in Iraq.
