I don't know why I am dissapointed with the 60 minutes interview of Sgrena. By now I should know what to expect from the MSM and not be a bit surprised when they behave accordingly.
I suppose I was hoping for a classic hard hitting, no holds barred assault on the numerous inconsistencies in her story. Something akin to the blindsided attack on a company CEO suspected of bilking clients out of millions or maybe the verbal blitzkrieg of a hapless meat manager accused of post dating packages of T-bones.
Unfortunately what we got was "You tell your side of the story" type questions, and we'll tell the military's side of the story. Ever notice when they tell somebody elses side of the story, it's never all that convincing? That is a classic way the liberal media can be biased and yet have it come in under the radar. Both sides are presented, so at least superficially it appears fair, however, the side who has the opportunity to tell their own version of events inherently has the advantage. It's a canard used frequently but perfected by NPR.
They could have hit her hard on several fronts. "Why did you say 400 bullets were fired at your car, but looking at these pictures, there are only a few bullet holes visible and the windshield is in tact."Your statement after capture certainly appeared rehearsed, was it." "How about your ideology, you are a communist, aren't you? etc etc etc" This could have been a great interview, full of fireworks, it turned out less than mediocre.
If you didn't watch it, good for you, you didn't waste 30 minutes. If you did watch it like me, maybe next time we'll finally learn our lesson and not waste the time. I keep expecting the MSM will one day wake up and do it right, that they will surprise me. They never do.
