Apparently, doing actual journalism is, you know, hard work (emphasis added):
Ahmadinejad, who has in the past referred to the Holocaust as "a myth" and called for Israel to be "wiped off the map," ...
Wow! He said that? Well, actually, no, he didn't. But it makes a great story, doesn't it?
THE CC READER CHALLENGE: Here's something to wile away the hours. Let's all keep track of the number of Canadian media outlets that repeat that hoary myth, as well as those who take the time to do some research and debunk it. I'm thinking the only meaningful wager here would be under-over of some kind.
SOMETIMES, THIS IS TOO EASY. Now, what group in Canada do you think would be so hopelessly, so inanely, so hysterically gullible that they would continue to propagate that Israel "wiped off the map" hoax? Go on, guess. Really, guess. Oh, crap ... you guessed.
