"If what you are asking is would I be outraged if the story were true, I wouldn't be outraged at Michael Isikoff"

I would be. The story, true or not, should never have been published.

On the "Atrocity" meter, the needle barely moves. But on the "Potential Harm To Innocents Abroad" meter, it's off the scale.

(I understand your logic)
You think this is just like all those Hollywood celebs who have a home made porno “accidentally” get out into the public as their career is fading or which brings them to stardom (Pamela Lee, Paris Hilton, etc). “Oh no, how did that “accidentally” leak into the media?”, as their face and name is all over TV, the tabloids and radio.

(But)
But how can Newsweek possibly profit from this? This will kill their reputation as a credible source for news. Look at CBS and their credibility and polls after the Rather ordeal. This ought to hurt Newsweek not benefit them twice since the readers buy this magazine to get what they believe to be accurate news.

I couldn't agree with you more. As the old frog said, "Liberty is the freedom to do as you ought." Compare spiky's action in the Lewinsky story to the present case. In the former, he had to be dragged into publishing by Drudge, because he didn't want to embarrass Clinton. In the latter, he rushed to publish just so that he could embarrass Bush and consequences be damned.

"Their shoddy ass journalism got people killed."

Ever notice how their "journalism" only gets this shoddy when they are casting George Bush, Bible-based Christians, the military or America in a bad light? The rest of the time, they seem to understand that charges must be substantiated, documented and sourced. Funny how they "forget" that so predictably, so selectively.
