Finally, an Apology

Jason VS posts an apology letter from newspaper editor Rex Smith regarding the Jimmy Massey debacle. Massey, you may remember, is a former Marine who has been making exaggerated claims of U.S. atrocities in Iraq. A number of players in the MSM printed these claims (I do not believe the N&O did so), and not many of them have apologized now that the stories have been proven to be lies. Congratulations to Jason for calling Smith out, and congratulations to Smith for admitting that the press has a problem with investigating and printing the truth, especially if the truth does not fit into the "blame America first" mentality many in the MSM carry.
