Debunking Myths

Michelle Malkin has a post up about it's not just Newsweek with journalistic standards problems.

One of the issues she highlights is the bogus story that US troops stood by while the antiquities at the Iraq National Museum were looted.

The myth has now been created that 170,000 antiquities were looted when in fact the number is closer several thousand and may even be as low as a few hundred.

I'm going to use this post as a place to store debunked myths for easy reference. I'll put it on the top left of the blogroll.
