It’s true. Why is Brian Williams the only one to get in trouble for rewriting the Iraq war history?

In somewhat related news, on Friday, Iceland actually jailed some bankers and CEOs. In the rest of the world, being rich and powerful still gives you a personal get-out-of-jail-free card.

    And let’s not forget Fox News, which has taken to purveying outright fiction (aka “bald-faced lies”) under the rubric of “news.”

    I was contemplating this absurd brouhaha the other day, along with the surprising indictment of the rookie cop who accidentally shot a citizen while opening a door. I think the unforgivable in our culture these days is the unintentional lie / shooting / crime. Because clearly, when people — commentators or cops — do it intentionally, we genuinely aren’t bothered by it. It’s just the accidental oopsies that earn public outcry these days.
