Salon Takes on WSJ

greenwald_art.gifSalon’s Glenn Greenwald caught the Wall Street Journal in a bold-face bending of facts. A revising of the record. A big fat falsity.

The editorial in the WSJ said:

We doubt that President Bush, who was notorious for being parsimonious with follow-ups, would have gotten away with prescreening his interlocutors.

Greenwald corrected the record.

We once got an opportunity to meet Helen Thomas. Our first question to her was about Jeff Gannon, the most famous of Bush’s ‘prescreened his interlocutors’ (you know, the gay male prostitute from a fake/super thin/barely one by definition newspaper Talon News). Gannon, with his White House press credentials liked to launch fluffy softball inquiries at President Bush. Convenient.

We wanted to know how that happened. Thomas’ quick response was,”He wasn’t the only one.” And then in a bitter twist of irony – she was whisked away before we could have a follow-up question.
