Thread Name: BS: Galloway tears them to shreds
Subject: RE: BS: Galloway tears them to shreds
Fair's fair though - it wasn't just the Senate that tried to keep the lid on it - I gather papers including the New York Times cut out the hairy stuff, such as the comment about how Rumsfeld had met Saddam as often as Galloway, but for rather more nefarious reasons. And that is apparently what is counted as "the liberal media" in the USA, and denounced as too left wing!

Anyway, here is an interesting piece by a journalist from Scotland who acompanied his mate Galloway on his trip to confront his Senate accusers - a good example of what we used to call "participant journalism" - "When the Respect party leader took on the Senate, one man was by his side to experience the showdown first-hand" Great reading too.
