If you're like me you have a number of friends whose palpable dislike for President Bush seems to cause them to accept, uncritically, all claims of nefarious behavior on his part. The latest example is the breathless MSM reporting on the notion that Bush was forewarned about the destruction of the New Orleans levees during Katrina, and later denied being warned.
The Los Angeles Times is the most recent and most visible MSM outlet to provide that calumnious fodder to its overly-credulous readership. Paterrico demolishes the entire story-- not just the Times' reporting on it-- here. I think this is a very telling story of what appears to be a typical MSM rush to negative judgment.
