Michelle Malkin continues to take on the MSM with a New Years Day hit piece.
After reading an article entitled:
Justice Deputy Resisted Parts of Spy Program

A reader could easily come to this conclusion:
“So, “King George” went to extraordinary lengths to seek the DOJ’s approval, suspended parts of the program to address civil liberties concerns, subjected the program to more stringent NSA requirements, and submitted to an audit that is not known to have found any instances of documented abuses.”

vs what the times was looking for: (they don’t tell you what to conclude, and see if you can tell me where they’re headed)

WASHINGTON, Dec. 31 – The top deputy to then-Attorney General John Ashcroft refused two years ago to approve important parts of the secret program that allows domestic eavesdropping without warrants, prompting two leading White House aides to try to win the needed approval from Mr. Ashcroft himself while he was hospitalized after a gall bladder operation, according to officials knowledgeable about the episode.
