More US media lies

It appears that the US media is dead-set on persuading the US public that a war on Iraq is justified, to the extent of simply lying when appropriate. This time, it’s CNN that’s been caught out. Dan Hon has done a fantastic job of showing how CNN has removed over 800 words from its “transcript” of the Blix report on disarming Iraq. And, surprise surprise, the words removed are about Iraq’s move towards compliance, and a partial refutation of the evidence presented by Colin Powel to the Security Council.
Do the media think they can’t be caught anymore?
