It appears the NY Times did another horrendously slanted, dishonest piece (not a surprise!), but this time my friend Mark Corallo fought back. Compare Corallo’s account of the interview with the NYT mentions of Corallo. Corallo’s word is gold; if he says that is what happened, then that is what happened. It’s a shame that reporters can’t have the equivalent of disbarrment, or that they can’t be sued for malpractice (a standard of proof lower than that for libel), because methinks the Times would already have been put out of business if that were the case, and if stories as bad as this one keep being the norm.
Oh….and one more thing: Corallo is right that these Blackwater guys deserve praise, not condemnation!
