As soon as the story broke, Grass's biographer, Michael Jürgs, appeared across the media spectrum, almost in tears, declaring how hurt he was by the revelation, which had, of course, blown a huge hole in his own credibility as a "biographer".But worse was to come for him because it has since become public that when Grass surrendered to US forces, he declared that he was an SS member.This fact was duly noted and placed in the records.Where it lay for 60 years, unread.Clearly, Jürgs never bothered to check and not one member of Germany's supremely arrogant journalistic troop (troupe?) saw the need to take a look, either. ( Here it is.) This is the same gang, by the way, that devotes acres of print and gigabytes of video to rehashing the latest item about Guantanamo (without once crediting Matt Drudge from whom they lift their stories) and feeling smug about their superiority.
