David Gregory

America's most pompous TV reporter just said that Maliki "is still speaking the language of the White House on troop withdrawals."

That's just insane. Maliki just explicitly agreed with Obama's 16 month timetable. I was angry that the story has been soft pedaled to the extent it has, but what Gregory's doing here isn't just ignoring but getting the story completely backwards. Basically lying.

Much respect to Matt Drudge, whose frontpaging the headline "MAG: IRAQ LEADER SUPPORTS OBAMA PLAN" makes me seriously wonder whether I wasn't wrong to laugh at the Politico (aka Drudgico) profile suggesting that Drudge has been moving left.
