More sloppy reporting

The Christian Science Monitor on reactions of 9/11 families to today's Rice testimony:
After the hearing, several felt the administration was clearly lax in its response to the terrorist threat. "If [Bush and Rice] had paid attention to [the August 6th presidential briefing], my son would be alive," says Bob McIlvaine, whose son, Bobby, died in the World Trade Center attack. "I think it's a disgrace."
Once again, no mention of McIlvaine's membership in Peaceful Tomorrows, an organization of families of 9/11 victims who were against this Administration, the invasion of Iraq, and the invasion of Afghanistan. Nope: just an average 9/11 family member, expressing his views based strictly on this hearing. And needless to say, none of the members quoted were conciliatory or favorable towards the Bush Administration. Nice, balanced reporting.
