The Corporate Media is Officially Useless

This makes me SO furious!

Monica Goodling got in front of Congress the other day and stated that Tim Griffin engaged in Caging of black votes in Arkansas during the 2004 Presidential election and that she had informed her superiors about it! That means Gonzo, McNulty and Kyle Sampson all lied when they claimed they didn't know anything about it.

As John Conyers pointed out it is becoming clearer and clearer that the White House was pulling strings in the Justice Department to use them for unethical, partisan political purposes.

If you are unaware, Caging is an illegal voter supression tactic that investigative reporter Greg Palast of BBC News has been reporting on for years. According to his investigations, the Republican party engaged in caging back in 2000 and again in 2004.

Monica just confirmed that in sworn testimony in front of Congress!!!
That is the ultimate smoking gun!

She also stated that she believed she had broken the law ("crossed the line of the law" was the actual phrase) in using partisan tests for positions within the Justice Department.

But what did CBS News decide to report?

They simply copied a report from the Ultra-Rightwing website, National Review, who's Orwellean headline read, "No Smoking Gun from Goodling"
