More Jeremy Scahill, please
Posted by Jill | 7:21 AM
Watch Jeremy Scahill demolish that bloviating hack Chuck Todd on Bill Maher's show this week:

Note how Todd tries to dodge the issue of Afghanistan, claiming credit for what Helen Thomas does. Note how he talks about lack of trust in government and equivocates between lying about an affair and lying to send over 4000 Americans to their deaths. Chuck Todd, who wasn't always like this, is emblematic of everything that is wrong with political journalism today. Now he gets invited to the parties, and refuses to ask tough questions. He too falls into the "He said, she said" model of journalism, in which truth and utter horseshit become one and the same.

The problem is, who actually HEARS Jeremy Scahill other than those who already know what he's talking about?
