So Zarqawi really is dead. Super Fun Power Hour rejoices.
Doesn’t change my point, which was simply that this was the sixth or seventh time Zarqawi was reported dead.
SFPH ignores the historic reality — and we’re talking history that’s less than a year old — that the military paid journalists in Iraq to plant stories in which “absolute truth was not an essential element”.
Okay. So they fibbed then. But not now.
Jeez. Critical thinking is a lost skill in the blogosphere.
