» Hooded Iraqi in photo: the NYT got it wrong from Sister Toldjah
Earlier this week I blogged about the speculation that the Iraqi featured in this NYTimes story (using the CommonDreams reprint link because the direct link to the NYT story is no longer free to access) who identified himself as the man who was photo... [Read More]

It's the initial reporting that counts. They achieved their objective. Another excuse to bash Bush and the military. The correction means nothing without penalties applied to the writers and editors.

eric

seems a bit shrill to color a case of mistaken under-the-hood as "bashing." isn't it more curious that the army says the hood-wires trick only happened to one person?

I was amused at the prior reporting slipping YET again through the cracks...I.E. Your Blonde's will be extinct post...Times PRIOR (before the latter FEATURE) reporting on the study was even mocking other news orgs for running with it.

can't make it up.

So, eric, he only lied about being the guy in the picture, and except for that he's telling the truth? Got any evidence other than his word?

Daddy

TM, Just a word of thanks for your continual good efforts at self-policing the blogosphere. Spotted your valuable comments at both Captain's Quarter's and at Tigerhawks. Excellent job. I take it your college Alma Mater didn't get selected for the big dance, otherwise I can't imagine how you could possibly wind up with so much free time during NCAA Tournament weekend. Go to Hell Duke.

Hey Daddy-
My team got selected and then unceremoniously upset right out of it.
Unless that is just an internet rumor, one I would be happy to have TM self-correct.

Daddy

Maybee,
If I recall correctly, you're in Japan? If so, that probably explains why you're awake this time o' the night. OT do the locals there hate us for cheating them last week with that bogus tag up call in the International Baseball Championships that allowed the US to steal a victory over Japan? And secondly, how are they handling the humiliation of losing to Korea? I'm in country enuff' to know they take that stuff way seriously. Go to Hell Duke, and the Hanshin Tigers with 'em!

TigerHawk

You are, of course, correct. Indeed, thank you for being so gentle about it. I have "appended" a correcting "editor's note."

MayBee

Daddy-
You know, it would be decidedly un-Japanese for anyone here to tell me they hate us for cheating that call. They would simply wait for me to apologize ;-).
As far as losing to Korea, they got their revenge 6-0. Now Japan gets the last laugh, as they will play for the trophy.
My Spartans will have no last laugh, however...

Daddy

Thanks Maybee for the baseball update. Here in Alaska it's now time for bed.

TM

I take it your college Alma Mater didn't get selected for the big dance, otherwise I can't imagine how you could possibly wind up with so much free time during NCAA Tournament weekend.

LOL - yeah, I'm just spreading the gloom now.

Tiger - hey, your on the A-team; together, we may have saved some fan of the NY Times from having an aneurysm. (Well, it was still worth doing...)

kim

Bradley? Didn't they used to be hot stuff in the Missouri Valley Conference along with Cincinnati and St Louis? Wichita State? Another oldie and goodie.

Sue Smiley Morris, recently deceased, mourns the Spartan loss from her perch in heaven.

Kevin

Well, while those two fellows go farther than you like, maybe the question needs to be asked if that man lied about this, what else is he lying about?

or is that just too old-fashioned for modern journalism?
