If you read the news really carefully, you'll notice CNN (or any other western media) never said the boys were drowned by the Serbs. It was Albanian media who said that, and CNN just reported that Albanian media said the Serbs drowned the boys. So technically the western media didn't lie (although they did cleverly manage to make the Serbs look bad).

If you read my post really carefully ( :-) ) you'll notice that I never said that CNN and others made the story up themselves. But they presented someone else's lie as if it was the truth, in order to make the Serbs look bad. And that's abuse.
Bottom line is, they succeeded. Temporarily, I hope.
