CJR's Lovelady on the "lies" that led to the Iraq invasion

Mediacrity notes that CJR Daily managing editor Steve Lovelady, in a letter to Jim Romenesko, pretty well exposes his poloitical bias when he writes of "the lies at the heart of the Iraq invasion."

Logan Anderson, an editor of the Lynchburg News & Advance replies, also in a letter to Romenesko:
Anytime someone dares to call into question the motives of the media, we can count on Lovelady to come to the defense of the far-left extreme....

The predictability of Steve Lovelady and the Columbia Journalism Review
has become something of a joke over the course of the last few years. They're preaching to the choir while lecturing a public that increasingly writes off both of them as useless relics.
Mediacrity adds to Anderson's thoughts:
Time for [CJR's] editors to come clean about their organ's open ideological bias. It's not a journalism review. It's just another far-left opinion journal.
