This weekend, I made a call to arms on actually doing something with the great work of Media Matters. When a "reputable" journalists (i.e., not Bill O'Reilly and his ilk) makes an untrue statement or such, we shall blog about it and scream about it until that untruth becomes news and until that person feels the heat - apologizes, retracts, resigns, gets fired, whatever.You can read the entire diary and all the comments here. In it is great action information which I will also excerpt because it's important that you make these contacts either way - either from here or from the original diary.
It's time to clean up the mess, and we're starting with you Andrea. As I noted (via Media Matters), she made this doozy of a comment recently on national television:Joe Wilson went on television with us and in interviews and said he had been dispatched by the vice president . . . He led people to believe, he said publicly, that he had been dispatched by the vice president. And that was clearly not the case by every bit of reporting that I have been able to do."
You were wrong Andrea Mitchell, chief foreign affairs correspondent for NBC, and you must let your viewers know.
NBC News contact info here. Andrea is most affiliated with Today/Weekend Today, the Nightly News with Brian Williams, and Hardball (where the untruths were told). It wouldn't hurt to hit the others as well (esp. Dateline NBC, Meet the Press, and MSNBC TV).
Post this on your blog - get it some attention. Let's keep them honest!!
