The media's Stockholm syndrome finally seems to be wearing off.

Like freed hostages who gradually cease to identify with their captors, mainstream media outlets seem to have been seized by a new spirit of liberation in their coverage of the Bush administration.

The new media message is righteous and clear: Administration officials tricked us – all of us! They assured us that everything they did was legal... necessary... for our own good... but now we see that they were lying!

Well, yeah. So what else is new?
