Tillman and the Koran Story

Greg Mitchell, in a "Pressing the Issues" column for Editor & Publisher, questions why the Army gets a free pass for inaccuracies in the death of NFL star Pat Tillman. He compares it to the controversy over the Newsweek article that mentioned Koran desecration:

"Where are the calls for apologies to the public and the firing of those responsible? Who is demanding that the Pentagon's word should never be trusted unless backed up by numerous named and credible sources?

Where is a Scott McClellan lecture on ethics and credibility? "

Mr Mitchell points out that, oddly enough, the controversy over the Tillman issue has a corporate tie to Newsweek. (Editor & Publisher)
