We Do Not Think It Means What You Think It Means
Topic: Media Research Center
According to a July 6 Media Research Center press release, "the NYT’s story on the anti-terrorist financial monitoring program has generated the following damage to the United States:"

a federal class-action lawsuit against the program, alleging violations of financial privacy laws;

complaints filed in 32 countries alleging that the program violated European and Asian privacy laws;

and, the Belgian prime minister is calling for a Justice Ministry investigation into whether the program, based in Belgium, violated Belgian law.

So, according to the MRC, the Bush administration being called to account for possible violations of U.S. and international law is somehow "damage" to the U.S., but those violations themselves, apparently, were not. Yet, if the U.S. had followed the law in the first place, there would be no such "damage."

Very peculiar definition of the word "damage," Mr. Bozell.
