Those “destroyed Sunni mosques” were not destroyed afterall

Posted by: ST on January 22, 2007 at 11:11 am

Michelle Malkin has a report in the New York Post where she talks about some of the things she saw while in Iraq, like those Sunni mosques that are still standing, contrary to reports last November from the much-discussed AP source “Capt. Jamil Hussein” that the mosques were “destroyed” which, as she correctly points out, cast doubt on other stories where Hussein was used as a source. Though we do now know that he does in fact exist, his credibilty is still in question.

She also has a link roundup of other bloggers who have been embedded in Iraq, who are reporting back with what they’ve observed happening there.

    More of the legacy drive by media hoisting their expertise on the American people. Did I tell you that journalists are better at everything (being an officer, architect, historian, climatologist, etc) than everyone else. Now we can add truth teller to that list. Because the drive-by legacy press will give us the true picture right?

    Everyone not liberal is to be questioned. Everyone not parroting the government establishment liberal point of view is to be trusted.

    By a bunch of non-peer reviewed wackos like us only!! AP has no questions of credibility that I know of. And most Republicans I would gather are not aware of any questions of credibility with respect to Iraq and Lebanon reporting.

    The problem with the AP is that it gives the local Piss-ant rags cover when the liberally biased articles are printed. No sources? Take it up with AP dear reader. Editorializing within the article? Take it up with AP. The reporter is lying/using non-existant evidence or sources? Take it up with AP.

    It just lets your local paper lie to you, yet THEY aren’t the ones lying.

    …this just in…unnamed anonymous sources reported that unknown extra-terrestrial vehicles dropped encrypted documents on unspecified places of religious worship announcing the arrival of aliens from a previously recognized planet…stay tuned for up-dates…

    Our local “newspaper” exclusively uses AP, New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times when covering national and international news. Talk about the blind leading the blind!

    Thanks to ST and Michelle Malkin for keeping the heat on AP!
