Galloway's Senate Testimony, NPR, C-SPAN and ...

Stop Press:
See the following post for an update on this matter: http://ifaqeer.blogspot.com/2005/05/galloway-on-c-span.html

People keep expressing amazement at what FOX and CNN and others did with the Galloway testimony.

But I was amazed at the "NewsHour with Jim Lehrer" night before last! I mean, it almost seemed to be consciously making sure that the viewer saw the Senate Committee's viewpoint as the truth!

Oh, and C-SPAN, which carries arcane Congressional events has no record of Galloway's testimony!

Of course, it doesn't help that the webpage on the Senate site for that hearing carries only the submitted statements of the people who spoke--and Galloway, it seems, did not submit a statement:

For a transcript, one has to go across The Pond to The Times (of London, of course)'s website:
