I just found out that an article from July 9th, What Did the President Know has been debunked by the very website I got it from. Turns out there was a guy passing himself off as an ex-CIA reporter, telling stories of non-existant debriefings with President Bush himself. Like any good internet rumor that gets around, it had the hint of truth: its easy to imagine the President mouthing off an a CIA operative, telling him to manufacture evidence.
The bigger danger with news blogging however is that one is always gleaning over the latest mainstream news tidbits. There’s a push from the kind of long-view reflective pace that is needed to really understand nonviolence. It requires some balancing to remain topical while not getting swept away in each passing media frenzy.
