Dura Discredited: Where's the MSM?
For days, we scoured the MSM looking for any A) English-language B) non-Israeli and non-Jewish C) mainstream newspaper that D) reported as a straightforward news story on last week's Paris hearing where the Mohammed Dura video was discredited.
On that count, cheers to Scotland's Sunday-Herald and nobody else.
We had scattered sightings of commentary in the National Post and the Melbourne Herald-Sun.
And AP, to our surprise, today reported Hamas arresting Jamal al-Dura -- a report that failed to note the French development.
So bloggers like Nidra Poller, Melanie Phillips, Richard Landes and HonestReporting/Take-A-Pen had to pick up on the trial. Did we miss something? Where's the MSM?

On the other hand maybe honesty in reporting no longer matters in the 21st century and the world needs strident partisans to bring the expression of truth back onto the agenda of its media outlets.
