Yes Bobert, People will believe the big lie if it comes from the Washington Post or the New York Times:
The Washington Post Jan. 29, 2001, "Of all the booby traps left behind by the Clinton administration, none is more dangerous or more urgent than the situation in Iraq. Over the last year, Mr. Clinton and his team quietly avoided dealing with, or calling attention to, the almost complete unraveling of a decade's efforts to isolate the regime of Saddam Hussein and prevent it from rebuilding its weapons of mass destruction. That leaves President Bush to confront a dismaying panorama in the Persian Gulf," including "intelligence photos that show the reconstruction of factories long suspected of producing chemical and biological weapons."
The Source of the Trouble
"Pulitzer Prize winner Judith Millerâ€™s series of exclusives about weapons of mass destruction in Iraqâ€"courtesy of the now-notorious Ahmad Chalabiâ€"helped the New York Times keep up with the competition and the Bush administration bolster the case for war. How the very same talents that caused her to get the story also caused her to get it wrong."
