Rich Lowry published a book report on Bob Woodward’s The War Within on NRO today. I would like to call the piece a review, but that term implies Lowry employed some critical judgement. As far as I can tell, he simply regurgitated Woodward’s talking points because as we all know Bob Woodward has an impeccible record of objectivity and factual accuracy.

This reads like a summer reading assignment, and is hardly the critical, rigorous approach we have come to expect from National Review.
