  (Photo via Wonkette.) I saw Charlie Rose interview David Gregory chief White House correspondent of NBC last night. For me the jury has been out on Gregory. Sometimes when he is asking questions at a presser, he seems like he understands what’s going on. But often when he gives his reports on TV, he [...]

They’re Back!

Michael Gordon who never met a case for war with Iran, no matter how flimsy which he didn’t fall for, is at it again.
