US Media's Dismal Failure on the Freedom Flotilla incident

Glenn Greenwald with a scathing critique at Salon, and with a money quote from Anonymous Liberal:
As Anonymous Liberal put it -- in response to my request to all television journalists that they interview journalist Jamal Elshayyal about what he witnessed on the ship -- "why do that when you can interview some U.S. politician who wasn't on the ship but knows what Israel said happened?"  And I would add:  "or watch highly edited videos from the IDF, which spent days blocking access to witnesses and journalists and continues to conceal the full, unedited videos"?   But that's American "journalism" for you in a nutshell.
