For Nets, Levee-Bombing Charges “Extreme,” not False


Great Newsbusters post, highlighted by Tim Graham on Corner, about how the network newscasts last night took seriously hearings at which residents of New Orleans claimed the levees were bombed. Nowhere in the transcript did I see any attempt to set the facts straight and point out that experts have found that the levee failure was caused by a catastrophic engineering mistake. Instead, ABC’s correspondent called the charges “extreme” — not false.

P.S. Graham points out Rep. Cynthia McKinney’s comparison of the evacuation centers to concentration camps. Kind of reminded me of McKinney’s last Katrina performance, when she asked Michael Chertoff whether he should be charged with negligent homicide.
