Everytime I close my eyes . . . Lies, Lies! March 5, 2006

Does the MSM enjoy making things up? I am beginning to wonder.

Media reports this morning that the U.S. and Britain have set an Iraq withdrawal date for the Spring of 2007 are being roundly denied by the U.S. military

Both The Sunday Mirror and The Sunday Telegraph reported the story. Reuters was on it and the U.S. military told them that no such plans existed and that the stories in the media were “completely false.”

Mirror Story (The only mention on the Mirror site of the story was in a Reuters wire story).

Reuters Story

The story in the Telegraph quotes an anonymous source for the meat of the article, so obviously it is of dubious veracity.
