MSM Admission: Tenet Did Not Call Iraq War "Wrong"

... pretty much obvious from reading the actual quotation. So why did the reporter claim that's what he said? Why was this falsehood the story's headline?

Correction, but of course less prominent than the original article.

The media always chalks these unbelievable gaffes up as mere mistakes -- "we're just human," they say. But it seems to me that all of these alleged "mistakes" seem to inure to the benefit of the Democratic Party, and against the Republican Party.

If you toss a coin 1000 times and it comes up heads 996 times and tails 4 times, well, now, you may be experiencing the tiny end of the probability curve. Or you just might be flipping a biased coin.
