Hyenas vs. Rhinos: Who Could the NYT Get to Write an Op-ed on Iraq? Hmm…

Victory For Wen Ho Lee

The five media heavies who shamelessly promoted the government’s lies about the Los Alamos scientist chose to settle today rather than reveal their government sources.
Lee was savaged by a media fueled by government rumors that he was spying for China, an accusation he was never officially charged with.

The media went to bat for government agents who broke the law.  When will those agents be held accountable?
