THE PROPAGANDA WING FOR OUR ENEMIES
Every time I think the media sinks as deep as they can go, they prove me wrong. The headline in my local paper today (in exceptionally bold letters, front page above the fold): "General Admits Koran Mis-Use."
In the context of the Newsweek story over the last several weeks, most people reading only the headline would conclude the US military is admitting that Newsweek got it right (or at least partially right).
In fact, the real story -- as detailed by the NYT (go figure) - is that "no serious incidents of intentional mishandling of the Koran occured." You can read the story href="http://www.nytimes.com/2005/05/26/politics/26cnd-koran.html?ei=5065&en=acc4abbd5d55e35f&ex=1117771200&partner=MYWAY&pagewanted=print">here.
In another story inside the front section, the acquittal of an American soldier charged with murdering two insurgents was headlined thus:
"Soldier cleared of Grisly Murders."
Got that? Grisly murders committed but soldier acquitted. In fact, he was acting in self-defense... but why let that stand in the way of a good smear.
