With Mickey Kaus on the LAT screwups and Taranto on the Sacramento Bee's running of a story that was discredited 5 days ago we can continue to have confidence in the MSM's "layers of checks and balances." The NPR hourly lead-in this AM mentioned the LAT's gaffe but basically had the reporter justifying the error as "it sounded like something Governor Kilgore would say" thereby employing the fake but accurate defense once again.
Folks: you just can't make this stuff up; either editors are incompetent, reporters incompetent, or most likely both at the same time. Our great northwest Salmon deserve better fishwrap!!!!!!
