CNN and Reuters at it Again

I'm sure I'm not the only one who notices CNN's propensity to stay on the left side of the news. This is evident on TV, and on their web site. Today is no exception, although this is a Reuters story so perhaps this issue rests with them.

In an article about Iran's lunatic president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today, the Iranian leader is quoted as saying Iran does not accept the claims made in regards to the Nazi holocaust. He goes on to recommend the Europe allocate land for a new Israeli homeland, so that the Jews could all leave Israel.

The story then goes on to say "Historians say that 6 million Jews were killed in the Nazi holocaust". So now Reuters is referring to the holocaust as something that allegedly happened? Why can't they factually claim what all the world understands as a historical fact?

What's next?
  • George Bush, whom political scientists claim is the President of the United States, addressed the nation today.

  • December 7th marks the day when Japanese warplanes allegedly bombed Pearl Harbor.

  • Extremist anti-choice protestors, who claim abortion stops a beating heart, antagonized doctors outside a clinic today.

    UPDATE: CNN has actually updated their story, and the "Historians say" preface has been removed. Between X-ing out Dick Cheney and this gaff, perhaps the inmates are running the asylum at CNN. Then again, perhaps it's the leadership that belongs in an asylum.

    Story here.
