Found this on here:
"I saw the fire brigade vehicle rushing to the area at top speed. Somehow its brakes failed and hit one police vehicle and coalition vehicles, then the Americans started firing," said Reuters correspondent Noor Mohammad Sherzai.
Sherzai and other reporters at the scene said many shots were fired and Afghan police were among those fleeing the scene.
"I was running away as fast as I could, but some of the police overtook me," Sherzai said. The police, he said, "were very angry because the Americans were shooting and wanted to shoot back but others stopped them".

I wonder if he actually said it out loud then wrote it down or if he thought it. If he didn’t actually say it out loud to himself is that manufactured news?

It would be amazing, in fact, it would take a miracle to find just one Reuters report concerning the U.S. military that isn't dissing it. As an literary exercise, try to find one Reuters report that has anything
good to say about our military.

Real credible news service you got there, Reuters. Yup, every assertion is accurate, carefully checked, and unbiased.

Well at least we can now identify the enemy, he doesn’t wear a uniform but he does carry a press pass.

The sad thing is that he didn’t even quote himself correctly. He left out “Death to America!”

[Afghanistan’s Interior Ministry said on Thursday police had captured Taliban spokesman Qari Mohammad Yousuf. But Yousuf called a Reuters reporter and denied he had been detained. . .”I’m here in this room. I’m free,” he said.]
The reporter apparently knows this terrorist well enough to recognize his voice over the phone.
Reuters and the AP are both top-heavy with goatherd stringers in Iraq and Afghanistan where the full-time staffers don’t dare to show their white faces outside armed perimeters. The “news” churned out by these 5-cents-a-word terrorist sympathizers is accepted as fact by U.S. editors and passed on to the public.
I checked Google News and this Reuters story has already been picked up by 45 papers, broadcasters and news sites.

“Reuters has been proven many times to produce less than factual accounts, strongly biased against the United States. I don’t know why anyone listens to these gasbags,” said Rocky.
This was an exact quote.
