Iraqis Call Shuttle Disaster God's Vengeance

Let's hear it for yellow journalism!

And by yellow, I mean cowardly and dishonest.

Clearly, this headline is intended to provoke shock and outrage. It does, but for me it's shock and outrage at the gall of the US media.


-the article's author is anonymous. Cowardly paid-off bastard.
-the quotes in the article are from a random mechanic and a random government worker. This does not, in my mind, constitute Iraquis as a whole. Nor should it, to any sane person.

Stupid journalists. Stupid media. Stupid people who charge after what they read in headlines without bothering with the rest of the story. Bah.

(What is yellow journalism, really?)

(Thanks to insomnia's post for the heads-up)
