It’s news to us…

Amidst all the furrrowed brows and experts in journalistic ethics earning their pay for their phony baloney jobs comes this admission regarding the coffin photos from our nice clean “nobody-that-I-know-is-getting-hurt” war:

Executives at news organizations, many of whom have protested the policy, said last night that they had not known that the Defense Department itself was taking photographs of the coffins arriving home, a fact that came to light only when Russ Kick, the operator of The Memory Hole, filed his request.

“We were not aware at all that these photos were being taken,” said Bill Keller, executive editor of The New York Times.

John Banner, the executive producer of ABC’s “World News Tonight,” said, “We did not file a F.O.I.A. request ourselves, because this was the first we had known that the military was shooting these pictures.”

Once they started calling Geraldo Rivera and John Stoessel “investigative journalists” we should have known that investigative journalism was deader than Bill Janklow’s career…
