Jill Abramson’s sad admission: “I don’t think the press, in general, did publish any stories that upset the Bush White House” http://www.salon.com/2014/07/30/jill_abramsons_sad_admission_i_don%e2%80%99t_think_the_press_in_general_did_publish_any_stories_that_upset_the_bush_white_house/ via @Salon
This is an interesting story about how the press failed the American public in the years of the Bush administration, specifically in the years after 911. Without a strong press, that speaks truth to power, democracy cannot function properly. Our press has been horrible in recent years. Thankfully there are still people like Matt Taibbi and Glenn Greenwald out there.
