Harry Shearer to Accuse Media of Mythmaking at National Press Club
~Shearer says he hopes to "enhance the feeling of shame among practitioners" in the press, whom he says have a "blindness to accuracy." He will argue that the nation's top editors and producers are "notoriously herd-oriented, cling to first-draft versions of news stories, and are reluctant to adjust news narratives when new facts come to light."

Wow! Thank you!

I've posted your comment directly beneath the pic, rather than pull the post so perhaps others will now of this mistake.

I will also contact Florida Oil Spill blog about this.

Do you have a link to Priest? I will contact them directly as well.

Thanks yous. I'll link this into Priest's name.
Rex gave me the artist's email, so I'm awaiting a response.

If priest wants me to pull the post then no prob, but for now I'm leaving as is to warn off others.

He was very gracious when I contacted him when I posted it on my blog. I just corrected the attribution and he was fine with that.

I decided to correct the entire lede, and commented at Florida Oil Spill Law with your link.

I'm really falling for this Artist!
