Iraq - Doubts Raised on Magazine’s ‘Baghdad Diarist’

Nice of the NYT to finally pick up on the scandal.

For background on the story start here. More here. Follow the links to get the full story.

"Scott Thomas" "Shock Troops" story is fast falling apart. I especially love this bit from the TNR.

"The magazine granted anonymity to the writer to keep him from being punished by his military superiors and to allow him to write candidly, Mr. Foer said. He said that he had met the writer and that he knows with “near certainty” that he is, in fact, a soldier."

Uh oh. Sounds like TNR are preparing for the worst. Shouldn't Foer have made with 100% certainty that "Thomas" was a soldier and if he was reliable or not before running such shocking stories?

All this sound familiar? It should. Remember Jesse Macbeth?

As with that story and this one, it shows the left don't care about the facts and the left wing media are only to happy to run their propaganda and lies.

As for TNR, they have a history of these kinds of problems.

"In the late 1990s, under different editors, the magazine fired an associate editor, Stephen Glass, for fabrications."
