2008: The Year that Journalism Officially Died in America.
1933: 75 years ago, much the same thing happened in Nazi Germany though back then the press didn't go along with it willingly. They had to be shot.
Update: The transcript of the interview has been published here. After reading it, I sent CNN the following e-mail:
Now that Byron York has called out Drew Griffin for inventing a quotation falsely attributed to National Review, what precisely will occur?
1. Will Mr. Griffin be fired?
2. Will Mr. Griffin and/or CNN apologize to both Sarah Palin and National Review?
3. Will Mr. Griffin be required to take a journalistic ethics course?
4. Absolutely nothing.
If a poll were conducted, what percentage of American voters do you suspect would pick #4?
