The responsibility for the pointless deaths of numerous American soldiers isn't limited to the Bush administration. The journalists and editors and TV producers who skewed the coverage also have blood on their hands. I don't know how they sleep.

Eric Alterman, from 11/2002:

Reporters and editors who "protect" their readers and viewers from the truth about Bush's lies are doing the nation--and ultimately George W. Bush--no favors. Take a look at the names at that long black wall on the Mall. Consider the tragic legacy of LBJ's failed presidency. Ask yourself just who is being served when the media allow Bush to lie, repeatedly, with impunity, in order to take the nation into war.
