Blawggers on Newsweek's Quran coverage

While this story doesn't directly apply to the practice of law, plenty of blog affiliates are talking about Newsweek magazine's decision to publish, to correct and ultimately to retract a story that American interrogators were desecrating copies of the Quran (read Newsweek's statement here).

  • Norm Pattis writes Toiletgate: "Definition of the term lie: A Bush administration flak moving his or her lips on the war on terror. Newsweek magazine this week published a semi-apology about a Koran's being flushed down a toilet at Guantanamo ..."
