Flawed "reporting" by "journalists"


Well, they're half right. It comes out weekly.

Now it seems that reports of desecration of the Koran (and I saw another spelling, "Quran") by MPs at Guantanamo may have been mistaken. It seems the authors of the article took two failures to deny as confirmation of truth. Guess they weren't familiar with the scientific principles and proof of theories.

I could, at this point, make all kinds of disparaging remarks about their intelligence and/or common sense but my guess is that "failure to deny" as truth isn't such an odd thing in journalism. And it's a well known tidbit that "facts" have little to do with "reporting" anyway!
