Ok, Around Here that's Known as "not Helping"

Remember that story about our guys flushing a Koran down the toilet to get Gitmo prisoners to talk? The one that caused all sorts of riots and got more than a dozen people killed? Yeah, well, um... nevermind...:

Newsweek magazine said on Sunday it erred in a May 9 report that U.S. interrogators desecrated the Koran at Guantanamo Bay, and apologized to the victims of deadly Muslim protests sparked by the article.

As Glenn points out:

People died, and U.S. military and diplomatic efforts were damaged, because -- let's be clear here -- Newsweek was too anxious to get out a story that would make the Bush Administration and the military look bad.

Of course, it's Fox News that's the real enemy. All these other outlets, the ones accused of a liberal bias? Just right-wing propaganda. It's not like our liberal propaganda pressmonkey poo-flinging bad reporting causes riots and gets people killed.

Oh... wait...
