MSNBC Pushes Myth Bush Admin Outed CIA Agent As 'Retaliation'

October 1st, 2019 11:10 AM
Late last week, after word came that the former ambassador to Iraq, Joe Wilson, had passed away, MSNBC repeated some of the misinformation that journalists and other liberals pushed during the George W. Bush era as anchors Joy Reid and Katy Tur lauded Wilson for disputing President Bush's claims that Saddam Hussein had tried to acquire uranium in Africa before the invasion of Iraq.

Most Libby Pardon Coverage Fails to Mention Original Plamegate Leaker

April 14th, 2018 10:06 AM
Most of the establishment press's coverage of President Donald Trump's pardon of Scooter Libby has not mentioned Richard Armitage, the person who admitted that he first leaked allegedly covert CIA agent Valerie Plame's name to journalist Robert Novak in 2003. This pervasive failure includes items at the Associated Press, New York Times, the Washington Post, and over 80 percent of Google News…

Valerie Plame Continues to Spin 'Bush Administration Retribution' Myt

June 6th, 2014 11:03 AM
Richard Armitage. I repeat, Richard Armitage. One more time...RICHARD ARMITAGE. I just made Valerie Plame wince three times once she reads this article. Why? Because the name Richard Armitage completely destroys the myth she is desperately hanging onto after all these years that the Bush administration deliberately leaked her name as a CIA employee in order to discredit her husband,…

Richard Armitage, Leaker: A Still-Hidden Identity In Replays of the Pl

May 29th, 2014 1:41 PM
Tom Blumer's Plame post is essential reading to understand how the liberal media tries to maintain an impression favored by the left wing, even when the facts are otherwise. Take the still tendentious "correction" by the Los Angeles Times of its original story this week falsely identifying Lewis "Scooter" Libby as the man who leaked the name of former CIA employee Valerie Plame. I would add…

LAT Reports (Now Corrected) That Plame Was Exposed by Libby, But Still

May 28th, 2014 7:36 PM
Monday afternoon, in an error which made it into the paper's Tuesday print edition, reporter Paul Richter at the Los Angeles Times, in a story on the Obama administration's inadvertent leak of a CIA director's name in Afghanistan, was apparently so bound and determined to include a "Bush did it too" comparison that he went with leftist folklore instead of actual history. Specifically, Richter…

MSNBC's Roberts Offers Misleading History on Plame Affair in Interview

March 6th, 2013 3:48 PM
"As we talk about history, today marks the 6-year anniversary that Scooter Libby was convicted of lying and obstructing in the leak investigation which led to your cover as a covert CIA operative being blown," MSNBC's Thomas Roberts noted at the close of his March 6 MSNBC Live interview with Valerie Plame. "We're getting word now that he has had his voting rights restored," the MSNBC anchor…

Alec Baldwin: WikiLeaks Assange Should be Tried Only if Cheney is for

December 4th, 2010 3:36 PM
I really love when I see a blog published at the Huffington Post by Alec Baldwin for I know it's going to be some truly delicious left-wing insanity guaranteed to put a huge smile on my face. On Saturday, the idiot actor from Long Island, New York, didn't disappoint:

WaPo Writer: Twisting Facts in Political Movies Okay in Order to Tell

August 22nd, 2010 9:44 AM
Imagine a movie about Abraham Lincoln's assassination that neglects to include the character of John Wilkes Booth. Ridiculous, right? Well, that is pretty much what has happened in the movie Fair Game in which the person who leaked the name of Valerie Plame to Robert Novak, Richard Armitage, never appears in the film. So how to excuse such an absurd situation? Simple. Just write off complaints…

Valerie Plame 'Fair Game' Movie Tosses Name Leaker Richard Armitage Do

August 21st, 2010 10:55 AM
The only way we even know the name of Valerie Plame (and fame seeking hubby Joe Wilson) is that that former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage leaked her name as a CIA officer to columnist Robert Novak. That is what set in motion the long drawn out Plamegate affair in which only Scooter Libby was convicted of something other than leaking her name. So you would figure that the supposedly…

‘Fair Game’: L.A. Times Ignores Facts to Pimp Film, Trash Bush

May 21st, 2010 11:40 AM
Editor's Note: This post originally appeared at Andrew Breitbart's Big Hollywood.The political thriller Fair Game premiered at Cannes today. (Pause for giant, collective yawn from Big Hollywood readers…) The Sean Penn-Naomi Watts “starrer” (hey, it’s fun using unnecessarily awkward Variety-speak!) revisits the Valerie Plame Wilson scandal, an episode I’m not even going to bother recapping,…

Premature Emasculation: McClellan Doesn’t Believe Bush Lied

November 22nd, 2007 12:56 PM
In the past couple of days, you couldn't swing a dead cat without hitting an hysterical press report concerning an excerpt of former White House press secretary Scott McClellan's soon to be released book seemingly implicating President George W. Bush in lying about the Valerie Plame Wilson affair. Those guilty of premature emasculation will likely be distraught over statements by the book's…

Novak Clobbers Colmes on McClellan Claims

If Alan Colmes turns up at your Thanksgiving get-together sporting a couple shiners and a re-arranged smile, don't press the poor guy if he claims to have walked into a door. The FNC host just got clobbered by a certified DC heavyweight -- Bob Novak.Novak was a guest on this evening's Hannity & Colmes. Colmes first questioned the venerable reporter about the item he published this week…
