More on the misleading Rove

Media Matters - AP uncritically repeated Rove's dubious claim that warrantless wiretapping "might have prevented the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks."

Further to my post yesterday...this adds the critical point that the AP was lazy and not doing its job as a reputable journalistic outfit to provide the appropriate context for remarks. Yet another example of the problem that results when journalism becomes an exercise in dictation.
