Push Back on the White House Newsweek Scam

U.S. Congressman John Conyers has posted a diary at Daily Kos with his letter to Scott McClellan, demanding that the White House and the Pentagon stop intimidating the press corps. Conyers wrote in part:
Mr. McClellan, the American people have grown tired of the venomous partisanship and lack of candor on the part of this Administration. When taken to task for wrongdoing, a pattern has emerged of this Administration viciously attacking its accusers. The cornerstone of our democracy is an open and accountable government, and the American people deserve answers - not distractions -- today.
Get the facts on the Newsweek story. Newsweek did not make a mistake. This is deliberate attempt to use this magazine as a scapegoat for Administration policies that have gone awry and tarnished our image.

Scott McClellan should resign immediately. The garbage he's spewing out is complete and utter nonsense.
