Iraqi amputees: Trackback of story
I saw a piece over at Spinsanity about a Bush quote being taken wildly out of context.
I hadn't heard or read of the quote until I saw it there but nevermind that. I agree with them.
I commented there about the continuous lie that "the media" only prints "bad" news, and ignores the good. I said that the story started on CNN weeks ago and that's when I had that thought but never posted about it.
Some one else said they saw it on Fox first. Of course, if anyone was following the Don North documentary (see further down the post) they would have known sooner than this.
So, using Google Search and searching CNN's site I came up with where the story originated. Funnily enough I couldn't find any link on CNN to the story, but I KNOW, I would bet thousands of dollars on the fact that it WAS on there repeatedly over a weekend if not more. I remember seeing it once and then clicking past it a number of times.
Here's the list of relevant highlights along the way:
Voice of America
(Actually - different story not on these men)
Arizona Republic (and others AP including SF Chronicle, San Diego Union Tribune)
News4Jax (Houston TV)
News24Houston (credited to AP - short brief)
(Houston Chronicle, Copyright HC)
NY POST (different story by Don North, documentary maker)
May 14 (Google says May 13)
