Fisk Makes A Fool Of Himself

Remember the piece I linked yesterday? Well, Jeff Jarvis has reported that the Independent's Robert Fisk has it all wrong, again.

The more I read by Fisk (who infamously reported that the 'lying' Coalition Forces were nowhere near Baghdad International Airport, even as embedded journalists were reporting from the site), the more convinced I am that he lives in the same kind of fantasy world as the former Iraqi Information Minister.

In the blog comments on the story, Glenn of HipperCritical asks: "How and why does the Independent continue to allow this man to report the news?"

Indeed. The problem is, he's not the only 'journalist' doing this.

A webjournal of ideas, comments, and various other miscellany from a Texan university student (with occasional input from his family) living in Toronto, Ontario. Can you say "culture shock?"
