PoliticsTV confronts Joe Klein

In a fascinating piece of video, the fellas at PoliticsTV.com confront Time magazine contributor Joe Klein for going soft on President Bush, among other things.

Klein's response is a fascinating bit of bob-and-weave, though he does make an arguably valid point about the public being as much to blame as the media for buying Bush's lies. Your blogstress certainly agrees that the public at large bears some responsibility for wandering around, channelling Rod Stewart (or Cheryl Crow): Still I look to find a reason to believe... However, let's not forget just from where the public learns of Bush's lies -- from people like Klein. And if people like Klein are advancing and soft-pedaling those lies, then the media needs to pick up the heavier end of the blame burden.
