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.

When politics trump good sense: The Boston Globe, owned by the New York Times Co., were handed a story with photos yesterday that should have rang alarm bells for any skeptical journalist who is aware of what is going on in the world.

A Boston city councilor presented the Globe with photos alleged to show U.S. soldiers raping Iraqi women.

The "alleged" is the key word here, because it was just last week that several Egyptian newspapers ran similar photos, only to have the U.S. government demand a retraction after it was proven the photos came from a Hungarian porn site.

But the Globe went ahead and published those photos in today's paper.

The story fell into the "too good to check" category. Normal journalistic skepticism was trumped by an effort to further the attack on President Bush and his handling of Iraq.

Another hit for journalistic credibility. That liberal media.
