Our responsible mainstream media

Newsweek Apologizes for Quran Story
Newsweek magazine Sunday apologized for a May 9 report alleging U.S. interrogators flushed the Quran down the toilet at Guantanamo Bay, an allegation that had prompted attacks in Pakistan, Afghanistan and the Gaza Strip that left 15 dead and scores more injured.

"We regret that we got any part of our story wrong and extend our sympathies to victims of the violence and to the U.S. soldiers caught in its midst," Editor Mark Whitaker wrote in the magazine's latest issue.
Newsweek "regrets" having published a false story that has resulted in rioting, death, destruction of property, and anger towards America. Actually, Newsweek doesn't care about the anger towards America, radical Islamists are the only group who may hate our country more than the mainstream media does.

In unrelated news Newsweek has announced that it will no longer be taking news tips from Jayson Blair or Dan Rather.
