Is there a newspaper columnist who has cast an eye on the AP and the case of Iraqi police captain Jamil Hussein? Today in his Boston Herald column, Jules Crittenden steps forward; “Say no to AP’s shoddy work.” Jules writes:
The AP is making up war crimes. But the resulting stink in the blogosphere has barely wrinkled a nose in the mainstream press. The ethics-obsessed Poynter Institute seems to be oblivious to it.
The oblivion has reached epidemic proportions. Some kind of congratulations are in order to Crittenden, who in this column plays the role of the little boy in the story of the naked emperor.
