Not the news

The report from the 9/11 commission that there is "no credible evidence" that Saddam Hussein helped al-Qaeda target the United States is not news in the sense that anyone who has been paying attention for the last three years already knew that (even Bush stated this publicly a few months back). But, according to Kos, the report is the top story on CNN and MSNBC (FOX is minimizing it of course) and it is spreading like wildfire (I'm away from the TV so I can't report on this)..

In other words, the establishment media is acting like this is a startling revelation, which is an indictment of them, but good news in the long run because the only thing the establishment media is good at is breathlessly repeating startling news over and over and over again. Maybe that repetition will finally beat it into people's heads that they have been lied to by the Bushies for so long.

We can only hope.

Update:

Enterprising Kosovarians managed to capture the following from CNN (click for larger view):

Talk about bad timing.
