Strange How It's The Same Story

More info on the story that lead to the Newsweek Riots. Isn't it strange that we get the same excuse from the media that we got during the Rathergate story:
"Obviously we all feel horrible about what flowed from this, but it's important to remember there was absolutely no lapse in journalistic standards here," he said. "We relied on sources we had every reason to trust and gave the Pentagon ample opportunity to comment. . . .(WaPost via Roger Simon)

That is exactly the same story we heard from the media and the left about the Rathergate story and their unimpeachable source:
Half an hour later, Roberts called "60 Minutes" producer Mary Mapes with word that Bartlett was not challenging the authenticity of the documents. (HT:Wizbang)
This is just LAME!

How many times did I hear that from the moonbats! Well it's their fault, they didn't deny it.....well, it appears that they are honest enough to only comment on what they KNOW.

This is a serious flaw in today's media - their desire to believe the worst about America, and Republicans more specifically!

By the way, Wizbang made this point about Rathergate here:

CBS Blames the Whitehouse (again)

BTW, can you imagine if the administration had commented? The story would have gone like this, "Bush Administration Tries To Kill Memo/Koran Story."
