Dangerous New Conventional Wisdom

Dangerous New Conventional Wisdom Forming Off the East Coast

Here's a newly minted bit of MSM groupthink that needs to be stamped out before it congeals into conventional wisdom: that only people on the left are upset about the way the White House used lies and deception to lead us into a reckless and unnecessary war. A sub-version of this is that the only people upset about Judy Miller and Plamegate are anti-war types who care about the role Miller and the neocons played in helping the Bush White House market the war.
This nugget first hit my radar screen Tuesday night. I was on CNN being interviewed by Aaron Brown (in my experience, one of the best interviewers in the business), when, to my surprise, he suddenly suggested that "a lot of the animosity that's being directed towards Ms. Miller, a lot of the hits she's taken...are just simply coming from the left, people opposed to the war...[and] what was clearly flawed reporting leading up to the war."

I thought it was an isolated incident. But there I was this morning, still on my first venti latte, reading Howard Kurtz's column , when I came upon the nugget again. After quoting Miller's assertion that people are "upset about the war in Iraq, about the Bush administration; they want to know whether they were misled into this war," Kurtz wrote: "She's right... the passion, especially on the left, is driven by the war." [...] What about we First Amendment folks? Or we social security/health care types? Or the balanced budget types? Or the global warming types? Or the business regulation types? Or the FCC types? Or the anti-outsourcing types? Or the "don't tax the poor to give tax breaks to the rich" types? Or the anti-oil-profiteering types? ... See //tinyurl.com/avwae for the rest of her post.
