Helen Thomas: Media 'Rolled Over And Played Dead' In Run-Up To Iraq War
Would you go so far as to say that your colleagues are in some ways responsible for the Iraq War?
I think that's very true. Everyone rolled over and played dead at a time when they should have been really penetrating. They were there for Watergate. But in this case they bought all the propaganda. Or, whether they bought it or not, they took it and spouted it.
