Another History Lesson

In today's WaPo Bob Woodward gives us another history lesson about the Irag War, in which he demonstrates that when Bush said again and again that he was adjusting troop levels in Iraq based on what the commanders on the ground were saying, he was telling outright lies. Anyone with half a brain knew this line was a big lie by the mere fact that Bush kept repeating it, but isn't Woodward supposed to be a reporter, and aren't reporters supposed to cover the news, which, all folk etymologies aside, is supposed to cover new events?

I'm not sure Woodward is a journalist any more. He is basically a stenographer. The trick in reading his books is to figure out who it is that is dictating to him at any moment.
