NewsMax Continues Murtha Lie
Topic: Newsmax
In a Nov. 20 article, NewsMax once again insisted that Rep. John Murtha called "for an immediate pullout" from Iraq. He didn't, of course; as we've noted, Murtha suggested a pullout "at the earliest practicable date."

Unlike NewsMax's previous article on the vote for an immediate pullout, the Nov. 20 article does note that the actual resolution the House of Representatives voted on was authored by Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter, not Murtha.

NewsMax also got defensive about claims that the Rrepublican-engineered vote was a political stunt, quoting a congressman as saying that "the move wasn't designed as a political stunt, as frustrated reporters tried to pretend on Saturday." NewsMax, of course, had a much different view of the Nov. 1 move by Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid to pull the Senate into closed session to discuss an investigation of whether the Bush administration misled the country into the Iraq war:

-- In a Nov. 2 article on the session, NewsMax put the word "stunt" into the headline.

-- A Nov. 8 article by Jason Barnes called it a "political stunt."

-- In a Nov. 3 column, Barry Farber noted "Senator Harry Reid's motion to have a secret stunt-session of the Senate."
