Newsweek: Sorry Guys, We Were Wrong
It looks like another one bites the CBS dust...and people wonder why blog readership is growing so dramatically while traditional media is in a freefall.
Here is Newsweek's ridiculous excuse:
Their information came from a knowledgeable U.S. government source, and before deciding whether to publish it we approached two separate Defense Department officials for comment. One declined to give us a response; the other challenged another aspect of the story but did not dispute the Qur’an charge.
Scared monkeys has more on the story, adding that Newsweek's source that "did not dispute the charge" is not exactly the same as verifying it.
