Astonishingly sloppy. The website, Medialens, writes (in its
Guardian journalist Maggie O’Kane later conceded of Kosovo:
“this is a tale of how to tell lies and win wars, and
how we, the media, were harnessed like beach donkeys and led
through the sand to see what the British and US military wanted
us to see in this nice clean war”. (O’Kane, The
Guardian, December 16, 1995)
In fact O'Kane was writing about the 1991 Gulf war, not
about Kosovo. (The Kosovo conflict occurred well after 1995, the
date when O'Kane was writing).
One of the Medialens editors explains: "Somehow
I got confused and slotted that quote in the part on Kosovo."
They seem to get "confused" quite often. Professor
Marc Herold (as you'll recall from previous threads) had
to correct them recently on a few other points they got "confused"
And they're "confused" about studies
into Iraqi deaths (eg IBC & Lancet).
