Conyers vs. Milbank

If you wish to see how the so-called liberal media covers the Downing Street memo and those who wish to have a debate on the issues it suggests check out this piece by the Washington Post Dana Milbanks. I find it fairly disgusting. Hard to stoop as low as this, I'd think, but maybe Milbanks's brains are unusually low in his body.

And if you'd like to know how John Conyers responded to Milbanks, go here. A snippet:

The fact that I and my fellow Democrats had to stuff a hearing into a room the size of a large closet to hold a hearing on an important issue shouldn't make us the object of ridicule. In my opinion, the ridicule should be placed in two places: first, at the feet of Republicans who are so afraid to discuss ideas and facts that they try to sabotage our efforts to do so; and second, on Dana Milbank and the Washington Post, who do not feel the need to give serious coverage on a serious hearing about a serious matter-whether more than 1700 Americans have died because of a deliberate lie. Milbank may disagree, but the Post certainly owed its readers some coverage of that viewpoint.
