Katie Couric, (quoted on MediaCitizen) reflecting on McClellan's charge that the media were complicit with the war propaganda that he promulagated:
"I think it's one of the most embarrassing chapters in American journalism," she said. "And I think there was a sense of pressure from corporations who own where we work and from the government itself to really squash any kind of dissent or any kind of questioning of it. I think it was extremely subtle but very, very effective."
Ah, so will Katie now interview her owners on camera and ask them the hard questions? "Knock, knock, Sir? Excuse me. Can I bring the camera crew in now, Sir?"
