The Truth Will Out

Via my husband: I found today's media analysis by Frank Rich actually rather upbeat, with its reminder that Most of the press was as slow to challenge Joe McCarthy, the Robert McNamara Pentagon and the Nixon administration as it has been to challenge the wartime Bush White House. and its subsequent prediction that in America, at least, history always catches up with those who try to falsify it in real time. That's what L.B.J. and Nixon both learned the hard way. Page 2 is far more interesting than page 1, in my opinion, but it's all good, and does answer the question "what's up with all these administration folks appearing on talk shows lately?"
