One Brave Woman

Picked up via TPM, Jessica Yellin, formerly of ABC News states unequivocally that “executives” edited stories, pushed her stories in specific directions and otherwise forced Bush-positive coverage at every turn during the runup to the war.  Not that we’re surprised about any of this – despite Anderson Cooper’s feigned shock – but it’s good to hear one brave woman actually report on what happened, however briefly.

And despite that enormous revelation, Cooper pointedly moves on without further explanation.

Prepare for the smear campaign against Yellin. Prepare to see he co-workers shun her.

Oh, yeah, good point about Cooper. He could have asked specifically which executives were involved. I’m sure someone else will (but I don’t mean someone else in the mainstream media, I mean someone in the blogosphere, where writers are actually interested in uncovering what happened)
