NY Times's Michael Gordon: War Propagandist

Recall the worst of Judy Miller's journalistic sins in the runup to the war in Iraq. Did you know that she often shared her byline with Michael Gordon?

Gordon continues to catapult the propaganda from the front page of the Times, only these days the villain is Iran. Glenn Greenwald has a post up dissecting Gordon's latest military press release.

It's long past time that Gordon followed Judy Miller into unemployment and obscurity. The man is an uncritical stenographer at best, a willful propagandist at worst. Plus, I'm sick of his scowling visage greeting me from the Times website.
