Media Schadenfreude and Media Shenanigans PING
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.

(Remember "Remember the Maine"? Well in the current war "Remember the Baby Milk Factory")
So they've resurrected this old canard. I wrote a letter to the editor about this after an ugly townie leftist attacked Gonzales using this false quote.
