Powell's address was instrumental in pushing a faulty media line on Iraq's WMDs further. That much was clear in the coverage right after his appearance at the United Nations, as FAIR documented on February 10 in "A Failure of Skepticism in Powell Coverage."
Not everyone had it wrong but there was just no press coverage for non-believers
Shameful journalism and no accountability for those inolved. Let´s hope the same mistakes aren´t made with Iran.
