Special Report asks "Did he lie?" Fox obtains "potentially explosive" memos

Reported by Chrish - June 15, 2005

On Special Report today 6/14/05, the top story promised to rock the world with its explosive new information and memoes obtained by Fox News, wherein evidence may show that the world leader misled investigators about his early knowledge of a damaging and costly wrong about to be committed.

No, the FNC flagship evening news program was again NOT covering the Downing Street Memoes and the newest documents to surface today, adding evidence that Bush was planning the illegal invasion of Iraq long before the WMD threat was sold to the American people.

Deemed more important were two e-mails which may suggest that Kofi Annan had a conflict of interest in awarding oil-for-food contract to the company which at the time employed his son. That horrible cronyism - we must expose it and do away with it!

Fox has been dogging this story for months now, treating every new allegation like a gotcha moment. It is the crux of the argument the Bush administration is making, that the UN needs major reform and a bulldog like John Bolton is the man for the job.

So where is this excitement, this devotion to detail, this investigative zeal when it comes to issues that effect Americans and the future of our country?

The difference is agenda: Fox is out to bring down Kofi Annan and prop up GW Bush. The clue at the beginning was "investigation" - the Bush administration is beyond such things as accountability. When you hold all the cards, you can call all the plays.
