Big Media and the Hersh Abu Ghraib boy sodomy story
The Poor Man's Nexis just now is not showing follow-up amongst rags one has heard of - and not without reason - the story first mentioned here on July 15 does not seem to have developed.
(The sum total looks like UPI - July 17, and datelined from Baghdad! - and the London Independent July 16.)
Hersh's book comes out on October 1, from memory, so he's pacing himself, I dare say.
A profile of Hersh in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram (July 18) doesn't mention the boy sodomy story.
