Editorial: How it turned 19

The Iraq War, the ongoing Iraq War, just hit the 19th year mark.  How did that happen?


The same way it was sold -- thanks to a whorish press.

Remember THE NEW YORK TIMES 'mea culpa'?  Forced on them by the work of the then-public editor Daniel Okrent?

They promised in that little note that they would be exploring their 'errors' (lies) in the future.  They never really did.  Like a US politician, they made a promise and expected that when it all died down, they could slink away.

So it was no surprise that THE TIMES and the other whorish outlets that sold the Iraq War would ignore the anniversary of the war that they helped start and that they kept going.
