Newsweek Magazine Should Be Held Accountable

This ridiculous turn of events gets me really fired up. Newsweak, er..Newsweek published a story about US Soldiers desecrating the Koran. The story was false. Period. Newsweek must have the same sort of supervisors and decision makers that work for CBS. The "go ahead and publish it, it must be true" attitude has got to stop. If there were civil and/or criminal penalties applied as a rule of law, such unwillingness to investigate the truth would probably dry up. If the magazine is successfully sued for wrongful death by those who died in the rioting that resulted from the allegations (lies), perhaps the end result will be a little more responsibility in reporting. But I'm not going to hold my breath.

I'll be back
