Its all over for Newsweek

Newsweek may have thought they could sweep this little debacle under the rug with the confusing Evan Thomas piece that made a cryptic admissions that is barely understandable. But Newsweek is getting covered by everyone now, EVERYONE.

From the Blogosphere to the MSM, everyone is taking a pound of flesh. Newsweek made an appology today in an attempt at damage control:

"We regret that we got any part of our story wrong and extend our sympathies to victims of the violence and to the U.S. soldiers caught in its midst," Editor Mark Whitaker wrote in the magazine's latest issue.

Victims of the violence? The violence that ended up killing these people was just a sympton of the riots caused by Newsweek. Get it right, these 15 people that are now dead were victims of Newsweek's irresponsible reporting. If the magazine wasn't so obsessed with doing any damage it can to our president and the military, and actually did some fact checking instead of running to press with a shotty story, these 15 people would be alive today.

The last 4 years have been shameful for the mainstream media. I can think of no other time where the media's credibility was in such tatters. The lies they used to be able to get away with are now being thrown back in their face, and their monopoly on "truth" has been broken up. While the MSM goes on covering their phony "quagmire" in Iraq, the New Media should start covering the MSMs quagmire. I can see the headline now:

Deathtoll in Mainstream Media's War Against Democracy Hit Another Milstone Today, 15 Civilians Reported Dead in Afghanistan
