It May Be A First Draft, But It's Written In Stone

The Anchoress links to a powerful essay by Marvin Olasky on the racism displayed by the MSM in their coverage of Hurricane Katrina and writes:

When the retrospects of 2005 are playing, later in the month, the story of Katrina will be told again. Will the press tell it straight, even unto admitting just how shoddily they had done their jobs? Or will we get the racism rehash?

I can’t tell if she’s asking this rhetorically or not, but c’mon–the job of the press is to write the first draft of history. The one that never, ever, ever changes, no matter how much evidence is presented to the contrary.
