A Big, Big Deal

Make no mistake -- the Newsweek reporting disaster (and accompanying apology) is a big, big deal. An outrage, in fact.

Once again, the press was all too eager to report something bad about the U.S. military -- and as a foreseeable result, given the reaction the report was sure to elicit, people are dead and the United States has been given another black eye in the Arab world . . . based upon facts that were wrong.

This is an important story, and you'll be hearing much more about it in days to come. And the press wonders why it's held in such low esteem?
