A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Correcting the record: The San Diego Union-Tribune publishes one whopper of a correction in its Opinion section -- and it involves a blogger.


In a Jan. 15. follow-up to his Jan. 12 column, "More deceptions to justify war actions," James O. Goldsborough stated that Fox News was the source of a bogus 1945 Reuters news dispatch that may have been the basis for a comparison of Iraq to post-World War II Germany by officials at the White House and Pentagon. Goldsborough further described the report as a "forgery" written by online columnist Rand Simberg for Fox and that it was then posted on Simberg's own Internet site two days later. In fact, Simberg originally posted the supposed news report as a column on his own site on July 28. He then submitted the column to Fox, which published it on July 30. In addition, the column was not presented by Simberg or Fox as an authentic Reuter's dispatch. Simberg labeled it as a "Routers" news article, while Fox added an introduction saying a Reuters dispatch in 1945 "might look something like this." However, the column was subsequently transmitted over the Internet by others as an authentic news story.
