Spikey's been a naughty boy? Again? Who'd'a thunk it?
This is not surprising, from Isikoff.
Isikoff was the first reporter to get the Monical Lewinsky story. After discussing it with the editors, they agreed all round to spike it, because it was negative about their man Clinton, and they didn't want to be party to that.
Someone at Newsweek that disagreed leaked the story to Drudge, which is how Matt Drudge came to break the dominating story of Clinton's presidency.
A reporter that would spike s story to keep the public in the dark about important facts about a politician, is a reporter whose ethics allow him to alter a quote, as he does here.
As you see, the more and more you look at the enemedia the more its stars are exposed as Jayson Blair on stilts.
Criminal Number 18F
Can you imagine someone doing this to Clinton(s)?
They'd have crashed his plane into Fort Marcy Park, before shooting him in the head.
You have got to see this.
I would just as well support executions for "reporters" that purposely misquote sources that ends up aiding the enemies as the Koran story did.
Please ping whatever lists you have and keep this one bumped.
There's a lot more here than just the duplicitous shenenigans of Spikey Mikey.
In my opinion it throws a whole new look at the antiquated Geneva Convention.
Worse, unlike Dowds alteration of a Bush quote, the NEWSWEEK story didnt even use an ellipsis to indicate what was missing. By altering an Alberto Gonzales quote in this way, NEWSWEEK managed to make Gonzales and the Bush Administration appear unreasonably dismissive of the Geneva Convention.
The story was co-authored by Michael Isikoff the reporter behind NEWSWEEKs infamous Koran-in-the-toilet story that resulted in deadly riots in several Arab countries. Accordingly, I suggest that when a quote is altered without any hint that it has been changed, the quote should be described as having been Isikoffed.
Text out of context has a pretext. This is why you cannot trust the MSM. Thank God for FR.
Apart from not buying Newsweek, what can be done, legally yet effectively, to bring about the demise of this lying rag?
