The Newsweek Story - Links for May 17th, 2005

There's a lot about this situation that really bothers me, journalistically and governmentally. You can't go anywhere in the blogosphere today without running into opinions on the Newsweek situation. I don't want to overwhelm you with information, but this is a truly important story with huge implications and contradictions. I suggest you wade your way through the links below and then, please, come back here and post a comment. Let us know where you stand on the issue. Was Newsweek wrong? Was the White House right? Or vice versa. Read away.

Why is Newsweek retracting?
Columbia Journalism Review says Koran allegations are not new.
Top military official says Newsweek article did NOT ignite riots.
Single Source argument from White House.
MediaBistro analyzes anonymous sources.
Opinion blog on the "overpowering air of unreality" of Newsweek's reaction.
Pentagon: "Never say never" about Koran flushing.
MSNBC's Keith Olbermann's take on the Newsweek story. Will Scott McClellan resign?
The White House and single-source reporting.

That's a start. There's much more out there.
