Rumsfeld: The intellectual dishonesty on the part of the press is serious

Posted by iusbvision on July 12, 2009

Media Research Center quoting Donald Rumsfeld:

“The intellectual dishonesty on the part of the press is serious,” he told me, adding that “a strong incentive to be negative and dramatic” infused much of the coverage. “It’s a formula that works. It gets Pulitzers; it gets promotions; it gets name identification on the front page above the fold.”

Part of the formula, Rumsfeld said, involved pillorying him along with Bush and Cheney but sparing Powell and Condoleezza Rice, who was national security adviser before taking over at the State Department. As an example, he noted accusations that Bush and Cheney lied about Saddam Hussein’s possession of weapons of mass destruction in making the case for the invasion. “They never say Colin Powell lied,” Rumsfeld declared. “They don’t say Condi lied.”

They also didn’t say that Clinton lied, Hillary lied, Kerry lied, the UN lied, Israel lied, Saudi Arabia lied, Egypt lied, Turkey lied etc etc etc because they sall said the same thing…
