When the media gets it wrong

I have in the past two weeks seen numerous articles following the publication of Newsweek's bogus report on the flushing of the Koran down the toilet. The report resulted in an international firestorm and sparked angry and violent protests across the Muslim world from Afghanistan, where 16 were killed and more than 100 injured, to Pakistan to Indonesia to Gaza. In the past week it was also condemned in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, Malaysia and by the Arab League. This raises the question… yet again, “How much of what is reported in the media can be trusted and where to from here?” Here are the perspectives of two blogs on the Newsweek debacle. Makes for interesting reading - you decide.
