This article is similar to what we've discussed in this week's blog about 'tweaking' and 'yellow journalism'.
US Representative Michelle Bachman (MN) claimed to have inside information on partition of Iran and Iraq.
She said this in a statement to the St. Cloud Times. My friend forwarded it on the Drudge Report (www.drudgereport.com) and within seconds Bachman's people were frantically trying to remove it from the site. The Drudge Report incited Rush Limbaugh to talk about it on his radio show- and the snowball effect kept rolling for Bachman from there.
Welcome to the world of blogs and internet collaborators-no one, especially politicians, are safe.
