After more than a week of the media flagellating itself in worship of Reagan, revising history to the point of calling Reagan the most popular president in 50 years (Clinton and Bush Sr. were both more popular), saying he won the Cold War single-handed, and that he presided over the longest economic expansion in U.S. history (actually it was third, after Kennedy/Johnson and Clinton), that same "liberal media" is going just as strong in all but calling Clinton a liar in his new memoirs. While many stories do concentrate on the fantastic popularity and success of the book, when they touch on the content, they come up with headlines like "President Pinocchio's Tales Are Fascinating" (USA Today), "A Former President's Alternate Universe" (Toronto Star) or "Alternate Universe" (Washington Post), and focusing incessantly on Monica, Monica, and more Monica.

Piece of evidence #817 in the argument that the media is run by rabid liberals who just won't give the conservative side a chance. Those bastards.

Many members of Reagan's own party didn't want him to make the'Tear down this Wall' speech. they thought it much too daring. Democrats probably thought it was just plain stupid. it was a courageous speech.
