Greenwald on the Bulgarian Bombing
From Glenn Greenwald at Salon:
I have no idea who is behind the attacks. If it turns out to be Hezbollah and/or Iran, that will not shock me: after all, if it is perceived that you have sent hit squads onto a country’s soil to murder their nuclear scientists, it’s likely that the targeted nation will want to respond with violence of their own. But there is no evidence to confirm the American and Israeli accusations. A reader of the New York Times article would not know that, while a reader of Brulliard’s article in the Post would. That’s the difference between journalism and propagandistic stenography. It’s really not that difficult or complex, when repeating government claims, to note clearly and prominently that no evidence has been furnished to support those claims.
Excuse me for being just a little pissed off at the Jews today. It started yesterday when I caught a little too much of Don’t Mess With the Zohan and has gone downhill from there. I also believe the career of Sasha Baron Cohen could foment a terrorist attack.
