Media Rally Around Newsweek

Monday, 23 May 2005 12:00 AM

According to the Media Research Center:

• CNN's Anderson Cooper wondered aloud during one cablecast: "Is it beyond the realm of possibility that a tactic like [flushing the Quran] was used?" He noted that in a recent "'60 Minutes'" report, one interrogator alleged that U.S.officials "routinely seem to sort of use religion against some of these prisoners."

• ABC's "Nightline" host Chris Bury sounded a particularly cynical note during one broadcast, saying, "Do you think the volume of the protests [from Bush administration officials] is, perhaps, a bit calculated to deflect some attention away from the policies at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo?"

• Nightline's Dan Donovan added: "And two parties to this mess are now learning the consequences of lost credibility. One of them is Newsweek. The other is America, in the Muslim world."

• MSNBC's Keith Olberman positively outdid himself, speculating that the Bush administration "set up" Newsweek with the story. He was joined by CBS's Craig Crawford who suggested that the dots of Olberman's Bush conspiracy theory connect.

"Why does a book in a toilet start riots, but a war doesn't?" Olberman wondered.
