Reuters Statement, Circa March 2004


“The group aligns itself to al Qaeda, blamed by Washington for September
2001 attacks on the United States.”

Doesn’t Reuters have any investigative reporters who might be able to, you
know, kind of do the necessary digging, the journalist spadework, as it
were, figure out whether or not al Qaeda has been wrongly blamed for the
September 2001 attacks?

Of course, according to Reuters, it is not clear whether those who
slaughtered Spanish commuters today are terrorists or freedom fighters.
Reuters, ever the principled neutral news agency, is adamant that “one man’s
terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.”
