Jennings, Brokaw, Rather Apologize for Inadequate Questioning of Bush Administration

Ah, we can dream, can't we? In The Globe and Mail today is a story about The Washington Post apologizing for being "strikingly one-sided at times" about Iraq's weapons in the months leading up to the invasion (though they were hardly the worst offenders). This is somewhat similar to an article in the New York Times in May about its own inadequacies during that period. At the end of the piece in The Globe and Mail is this note: "Representatives of the three major U.S. television networks yesterday said their news divisions were not engaged in formal reassessments of coverage."

Would "formal" reassessment be synonymous with "official" reassessment? Would either mean something done differently next time? This story in the NYT about the The Post's apology quotes the managing editor as saying, "We did not make a determination from our offices that we needed to commission an investigation into these issues."
