Larry Johnson takes a shot at John Hinderaker’s misunderstanding of the facts in the Valerie Plame case:
Hinderaker’s Folly: “If ignorance is bliss, then John Hinderaker is one happy fellow when it comes to talking about Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame. According to Hinderaker, who was appearing on Howard Kurtz’s CNN show about the media, he trots out once again the big lie of Republican talking points by claiming that Joe Wilson lied in his July 2003 op-ed. Hinderaker says that Wilson, ‘reported to the CIA that what he found out was that Saddam Hussein in fact had tried to buy uranium from Niger in the late 1990s. He then wrote an op-ed in which he lied about his own report.'”
It’s one thing to rant and rave from the relative obscurity of your own blog (like I do) but when you decide to try to mainstream factually incorrect statements, you’re going to get beaten down. One way to avoid this is to turn comments on, Hindrocket. People will voluntarily keep you in check. It’s really a nice feature.
