41. Oh I wouldn't worry about that. Our 'journalists' who reported totally false imformation

on Iraq and its WMDs, some of our most 'respected' journalists, are still on the air and writing in our most respected news papers. Talk about causing harm. Over a million dead human beings and untold numbers maimed both physically and mentally for life, not to mention the harm done to this country.

The idea that we have any journalistic standards in this country is almost laughable considering the past ten years.

So a minor story like this is hardly on the same level as the multitudes of wrongly sourced material that appeared hourly in the media here and which all turned out to be wrong.

There would have to be journalistic standards in order to violate them.

And at least in this case, a correction has been made. I'm still waiting for the the WMD claims to be apologized for and the lack of them given the same coverage their fake existence received.
