Question Authority

This time the authority is the Associated Press, and the misuse of their position:

The 13 Katrina contracts reviewed involve the following 12 companies: C. Henderson Consulting; Americold Logistics; Clearbrook LLC; CS&M Associates; Gulf Stream Coach Inc.; Morgan Building & Spas Inc.; Bechtel National; Fluor Enterprises Inc.; CH2M Hill Constructors Inc.; E.T.I. Inc.; Ceres Environmental Services Inc.; and Thompson Engineering Inc.

Some of the firms, including Gulf Stream Coach and Bechtel, have close ties to the Bush administration or have contributed significantly to the GOP.

Wow. Bush and his friends were at it again, I said, as many Americans probably echoed me.

Except Bush and his friends weren't at it again. Not that you'd know if you relied upon the smear job from Associated Press, as thousands of news outlets do across the country. A lie repeated often enough . . .

Read the whole thing.
