Mainstream Media, you're just not full of surprises, are you? Bubble Boy sure does have your peckers in his pocket, to quote LBJ, a guy who knew all about that sort of thing.
I remember the good old days, when men were men, and journalists were journalists, and Bob Woodward wasn't just a Mr. Potato-Head wearing a fake smile and a tie.
The olden days . . . when there really was a Fourth Estate . . . ----
BUSH CAVES IN TO ISLAMIST CONSTITUTION FOR IRAQ -- AND THE U.S. PRESS MISSES THE STORY

If the Bush administration brokered a deal in Occupied Iraq to enshrine Islamic law as the guiding principle of the new Iraqi Constitution, you'd think it would be headline news in the U.S. media, wouldn't you? Well, that's what has happened -- yet you can search the Sunday papers in vain to find this sell-out to the Islamists clearly portrayed -- or, in some cases, even mentioned.
In a dispatch that Reuters moved at 1:33 P.M. on Saturday (August 20), the headline reads, "U.S. concedes ground to Islamists on Iraqi law." "U.S. diplomats have conceded ground to Islamists on the role of religion in Iraq, negotiators said on Saturday as they raced to meet a 48-hour deadline to draft a constitution under intense U.S. pressure," Reuters reported. "Shi'ite, Sunni and Kurdish negotiators all said there was accord on a bigger role for Islamic law than Iraq had before."
And we Americans, who are footing the bill in all senses, just couldn't be happier!
Thanks a lot, Bubble Boy!
