Libby’s guilty verdict: Media myths and falsehoods to watch for

On March 6, a federal jury found former vice presidential chief of staff I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby guilty on charges of perjury, obstruction of justice, and lying to federal investigators. In the wake of this decision, conservatives and other media figures can be expected to revive and advance numerous myths and falsehoods regarding the CIA leak case that have circulated throughout the media since Libby’s indictment in October 2005.

In anticipation of this misinformation, Media Matters for America has listed those baseless and false claims likely to surface in the coming days and weeks. </em>

Very handy, in case some yap in a bar (or your own mother) starts in with the “she wasn’t covert” or “Libby acted alone” or “It didn’t compromise national security…”

Things just seem to be going from worse to worser for King George and his party of good little germans recently, hasn’t it? Walter Reed, the mass firing of judges, Libby convicted, Ann Coulter speaking on behalf of GOP candidates…

Ha. All of the treasonous enablers on the right, you’re simply getting the fruits of your vile labors displayed for the world to see. Or at least seen by those who don’t watch the 24/7 showing of “Triumph of the Will“…oops, I mean Fox News, who actually ran the following:

Amazing. An entire chunk of the American public seemingly believe that just saying something makes it so. Sad.
