What would take "courage" is an apology to Dubya.

"Courage."

It's a wonderful sentiment. But doesn't it underscore the problem? That Dan is a fighter, not a reporter? An advocate, not dispassionate? A crusader, not an observer?

A passion to get to the Truth is both praiseworthy and inspiring. But when that passion inspires you to slacken your own standards (two sources - at least - before you tell a story), wouldn't Political Agenda allow itself to look to you like Journalistic Courage?
