The Non-Confidential Katrina Tape

Ed Morrissey at Captain's Quarters has the latest untangling the AP's deceptive "Katrina video" story.

Ed links to a column by Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post, who confirms that this video has been in the possession of all the networks.

There is also another video being reported on today in which Governor Blanco tells President Bush, at midday on August 29, that the levees had not been breached -- hours after the National Weather Service received a report of a breached levee and issued a flash flood warning at 9:12 a.m.

Update: John McIntyre of Real Clear Politics believes that although Fox News and the blogosphere will help prevent the distorted videotape story from gaining the traction it might have in the past, President Bush will still be damaged because so many people still glean their news from headlines.
