‘Liberal media’ myth persists even when disproven

Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan, the latest of the Bush stooges profiting after years of deceiving the American public, had this to say about the national press corps in his tell-all memoir that has many of his former colleagues fuming:

“If anything, the national press corps was probably too deferential to the White House and to the administration in regard to the most important decision facing the nation during my years in Washington, the choice over whether to go to war in Iraq. The collapse of the administration’s rationales for war, which became apparent months after our invasion, should never have come as such a surprise. … In this case, the ‘liberal media’ didn’t live up to its reputation. If it had, the country would have been better served.”
