Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
When a politician says what can only be described as lies, are you supposed to report these as facts, without a comment?

If Bush and Blair start saying that Iraq is responsible for 9/11 and Saddam Hussein needs to be punished, then it's okay to print that uncritically, and beat the drums for war with headlines like "Saddam nukes 45 mn from London (says Blair)"


Why don't they say that they've been fed a report by Brown prior to the meeting in Brussels, a report "that is at odds with statistics provided by OECD and is likely to cause lively debate..."? That's information too, isn't it?

Or maybe they could quote ET to keep to their "he said she said" ways...
