But real reporting is hard

"[T]he intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy."

If you still care about honest government, and if you haven't read the Downing Street memo yet, you really should. Especially disturbing is this comparison of the memo's contents to Bush administration officials' public remarks leading up to the Iraq war.

The memo went public in the British press more than a month ago. Now that the Michael Jackson trial is winding down and the runaway bride has been abundantly shamed, American reporters finally have begun to pay attention.
