Newsweek: Another Mainstream Media Screw Up

Via Sykes Writes: a story on the Powerline blog about how Newsweek claimed that American soldiers at Guantanomo threw a copy of the Koran down the toilet in plain sight of Moslem prisoners.

Unfortunately, the sourcing on the story was very poor, and Newsweek has semi-retracted the story.

But it seems that Greg St. Arnold at The Smoking Room swallowed this story whole.

[Update: Newsweek has now come forth with a real retraction.]
