Jeff Zucker, Modest to a Fault

The press didn’t cause us to go to war in Iraq, he said; a general did.

Guess what, Jeff, 70% of Americans weren’t led to believe that Saddam Hussein was behind 9/11 by “a general”. You own that as much as anyone in American, except perhaps the original liars, Dick Cheney and George Bush, whom you broadcast with abandon and without any real reporting.

And I’ve been curious about this for some time, how come we had a certifiable psychopath and ignoramus as president for eight years, along with his megalomaniacal sidekick, and no one at NBC seemed to notice? Probably not your fault, though, in spite of your primary importance at the top of our watchdog TV press and the keen, vigilant eye of crack journalists like Brian Williams and David Gregory. Keep up the great work.
