The MSM kind of reminds you of Grandpa in his last days. Doddering, can't remember where he put his dentures, getting everything mixed up, but insisting that he's as well as he ever was.
Newsweek Washington Bureau Chief Daniel Klaidman said the magazine believes it erred in reporting the allegation that a prison guard tried to flush the Quran down a toilet and that military investigators had confirmed the accusation.
"The issue here is to get the truth out, to acknowledge as quickly as possible what happened, and that's what we're trying to do," Klaidman told the "CBS Evening News" on Sunday.
HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! CBS news. Truth. Stop it man, you're killing me! For once CBS news was able to feel morally superior to someone.
In a statement faxed to The Associated Press, Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah called the alleged desecration a "brutal" form of torture and urged Muslims and international human rights organizations "to raise their voices loudly against the American behavior."
Yes, that's brutal. I'd much rather have my head sawed off by a bunch of Muqtars. I bet the Grand (Poobah) Ayatollah said nary a word about that brutality. Spare me your righteousness, pig.
These "journalists" are directly responsible for at least 15 deaths because of nothing more than their desire to make the Bush administration look bad. "Newsweek Lied, People Died!" Bet you won't see any of the ANSWER protestors out there chanting that one.
I don't know about your plumbing, but if I tried to flush anything much bigger than a matchbook down my toilet, let alone a copy of the Kuran, I'd be in for a long day of playing plumber.
Shouldn't that have raised a flag for the folks at Snoozeweak? Maybe these rich liberals have better plumbing than I do, but I doubt it (although a bidet wouldn't surprise me). It's just another case of them being so willing...no, eager to believe anything that makes Bush, Conservatives and/or the military look bad, that they jump on the story with absolutely no thought or fact-checking.
Whitaker wrote that the magazine's information came from "a knowledgeable U.S. government source"
I would bet anything that, if this source even exists, they have direct partisan links to the anti-Bush crowd. They always do. But that's never taken into consideration by the MSM. After the whole "Memogate" thing at CBS, you'd think that, for their credibility's sake, reporters would look more deeply into any charges that are made. But they never do. They never learn.
Wild accusations are made against John Bolton and the media runs with them. It takes bloggers about 5 minutes to find out that these accusations are being made by Democrat activists and outright Bush-haters.
No wonder they hate blogs! We are the future, and it really pisses Grandpa off.
