MSNBC and Press Failing Public with 15 Second Soundbite of CIA Outing Testimony!

MSNBC provided gavel-to-gavel coverage (4 to 5 days) of the Anna Nicole Smith debacle but today is only giving a 15 second soundbite coverage of Valerie Plame’s testimony to Congress today re her outing as a CIA agent by Vice President Cheney and Carl Rove!  No wonder the public is not up in arms about such a criminal offense by the White House cronies; THE PRESS IS ONCE AGAIN NOT DOING ITS JOB of reporting important events to the people of this country! In addition to Valarie Plame being outed as a CIA covert operative, all of the CIA agents who worked with her and their families were put in danger! 
 
Valerie Plame’s husband, Joe Wilson, had reported back to the CIA and thereby the White House that Iraq was not acquiring WMDs from Africa! VP Cheney and Carl Rove in their attempt to discredit Joe Wilson outed Plame as a CIA agent! 
 
The REAL IMPORTANCE of this story is that VP Cheney, Carl Rove, and others in the White House INTENTIONALLY LIED to the American public re Iraq’s Weapons of Mass Destruction when they knowingly allowed a lie to be included in Bush’s State of the Union speech!  The lie was included in the speech to make sure the American public would support the Iraq War!  They DID NOT want the public to know that Saddam was not getting WMDs from Niger and THEY KNEW SADDAM WAS NOT GETTING WMDs FROM NIGER! 

MSNBC IS DOING A DISSERVICE TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC WHEN THEY ONLY REPORT A 15 SECOND SOUNDBITE ON THIS STORY THAT INCLUDES CRUCIAL INFORMATION ON HOW WE GOT INTO THIS UNNECESSARY WAR WITH IRAQ AND WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR GETTING US INTO THIS WAR!
