The furore over Newsweek and the Koran desecration at Gitmo
Search in this blog under ‘Guantánamo’ and you’ll find links to stories that show that this allegation fits a pattern. Newsweek followed the modern trend (against classic journalism) and had somebody in the US government vet the story, and it ran for 11 days without comment from the latter. Now the magazine has retracted the story — because it, and the government, didn’t like the reaction. Please.

I’m fairly sure that it did happen.
