A cautionary tale from the guy...

...who brought you My Lai & Abu Ghraib... let's face it, this guy is a liberal's wet dream come true...

It doesn't take much to fire up Hersh, the investigative journalist who has been the nemesis of US presidents since the 1960s and who was once described by the Republican party as "the closest thing American journalism has to a terrorist".
Of course, he's less celebrated when he turns his critical eye a little to the left...
"The Obama administration lies systematically," he claims, "Yet none of the leviathans of American media, the TV networks or big print titles, challenge him."

"It's pathetic, they are more than obsequious, they are afraid to pick on this guy [Obama]," he declares in an interview with the Guardian.
He's not afraid to get into specifics...
On the subject of the Navy Seal raid that supposedly resulted in the death of the Al-Qaeda terror leader, Hersh remarked, “Nothing’s been done about that story, it’s one big lie, not one word of it is true.”

Hersh added that the Obama administration habitually lies but they continue to do so because the press allows them to get away with it.
I miss real journalism.

There never really was any "real journalism".
