Newsweek Busted and Blasted
A media watchdog group blasted Newsweek Monday for refusing to issue a retraction of its report that U.S. interrogators at Guantanamo Bay flushed a Koran down a toilet despite the fact that the claim came from an anonymous source who could not substantiate it. Media Research Center President Brent Bozell compared Newsweek’s journalistic integrity to that of CBS News during the National Guard controversy. “Newsweek is guilty of pushing a false story they knew was unconfirmed but wanted to believe was true, and this time the result was tragic,” said Bozell, who is also founder of the Cybercast News Service. Unimpressed by Newsweek’s later retraction of explosive claims that U.S. military interrogators at Guantanamo Bay had desecrated the Koran, radical Islamic leaders in Pakistan say they will not drop plans for an international day of protest next week.
