No, Rhodes admitted to the deception himself in that article, and then crickets in the main stream media. No fiery editorials, no angry tweets, it's like they rolled over and played dead, hoping Obama would stroke their tummy.
keep in mind your article is predictable spin
so yeah, a one-line bit in a ny times magazine article weren't necessarily taken at face value by everybody. even so, the media weren't shy 'bout blasting the perceived lack o' truthfulness neither
goodly number o' articles, editorials and similar.
so... you are again talking nonsense.
HA! Good Fun!

It wasn't just one line, as the National Review link you provide explains. Especially instructive is what Rhodes said about the main stream reporters and how easy it is to fool them. Yes, it got quite a bit of play in right wing media, but how many people actually heard of it compared to the Sweden brouhaha? Yet the former is orders of magnitude more important than the latter, and was a deliberate, well thought out and carried out strategy of deception, instead of an off-hand remark that's actually completely true, once the media initial wild misinterpretation has been put to bed. Also btw, talk about not-qualified political people running the entire foreign policy.
dear lord. so the issue actual gets attention and condemnation from the media including that bastion o' right-wing media, the washington post, and you are still trying to spin? lack o' coverage is hardly as you first described, eh? and 'cause some after-the-fact snippet from a nyt magazine piece didn't get the worldwide and instant condemnation trump's baffling and mind boggling assertion received in real time, you see a fundamental difference? if at the time o' the iran deal rhodes had admitted to massaging the media during a national broadcast press conference or speech, you genuine think the media woulda' been quiet?
honest. you ain't even trying anymore.
HA! Good Fun!

Val you are far too cynical!
I'm not sure what gave you the impression I was cynical. I'm probably one of the least cynical people on this forum.
Then again, much is lost in communication when black and white text is all you have....
