FAIR TV: Scarborough’s War, Steubenville, Drone ‘Debate’

This week on FAIR TV: Joe Scarborough remembers some things about the Iraq War–but forgets the things he said back then. We didn’t. Plus we take a look at CNN‘s  coverage of the Steubenville rape that had so many critics outraged–and find that it wasn’t just CNN that covered the rape from the point of view of the rapists. And the Washington Post presented two seemingly equally credible takes on drone deaths in Pakistan: a detailed journalistic investigation documenting hundreds of civilians killed, and a senator’s claim she was told by the government that it wasn’t that bad.
