Les choses changeraient-elles?

Si on entend ça sur CBS News, c'est que les choses s'améliorent (le journaliste critique un article d'un journal canadien qui a fait des "unsubstantiated claims" sur l'Iran):

The article, however, offers nothing to corroborate Webb's claims and reports them without even a hint of skepticism . . . . But skepticism is merited. The government claims and breathless media reporting -- without adequate evidence -- that Iran is a grave and looming threat is reminiscent of the same claims and media coverage in the lead-up to the U.S. invasion of Iraq, as several commentators have pointed out. Remember Saddam Hussein's horde of yellowcake uranium?

“In 2002, it seemed utterly naïve to believe Saddam didn’t have a program,” Columbia University Iran expert Gary Sick told the New York Times in an article analyzing those parallels. The article continues: "Now the notion that Iran is not racing to build a bomb is similarly excluded from serious discussion, he said."

Le journaliste (Ken Millstone) cite ensuite Glenn Greenwald. Difficile de surestimer l'impact qu'a Greenwald dans le paysage médiatique. Plus personne ne peut l'ignorer. Voici l'article de Gary Sick que j'avais référencé la semaine dernière. Go Gary!
