LRWM in the tank on Social Security 

They'e taking Bush's word as, um, Gospel. The Amazin' Froomkin points out:

It would appear that no reporter asked Bush why his representation of Social Security's long-term financial situation is at odds with the experts. The program's trustees estimate that with no changes, the plan would no longer be able to pay full benefits beginning in 2042 but would still provide significant payments.

And in their reports today, I didn't see reporters clearing this up for their readers, either -- they just quoted the president and left it at that.

The Howler is keeping a list, reporter by reporter, of the tank-dwellers....
