What if the incident were true and it was reported, resulting in the same number of deaths? Should they still be charged?
And can you explain and justify your answer?
I don't play hypotheticals. I stick to reality.
These shoddy ass journalists had an agenda and that agenda resulted in deaths. They should be held accountable.
The logic you are using is utterly specious. If someone yells "Fire!" in a crowded theatre and people are killed in the ensuing stampede, there IS absolutely a difference in the degree of culpability for the resulting casualties depending on whether or not there actually existed a fire. Someone who recklessly yells "FIRE!" when there wasn't one (as Newsweek did) can & would be held responsible for the deaths he caused. Isikoff (he's a pretty smart guy, I'm very surprised he's part of this) better get a good lawyer.
