You'd Think That They Would Have Learned Something By Now

The Associated Press, Reuters, et al are still making up the news.

Remember Jamil Hussein? Apparently, the Associated Press doesn't.

When the major wire services ran stories claiming that 20 headless bodies had been found in a village southeast of Baghdad, with sources that looked dubious, Confederate Yankee blogger Bob Owens didn’t just sit back and complain. He got on the case and started asking questions. Days later, both the AP and Reuters retracted their stories.

Why don't we just leave the fake news to Jon Stewart.
