AP Pulls Iran Nukes Story After Antiwar.com Exposé

Posted By Eric Garris On February 9, 2010 @ 8:20 am In News | 30 Comments

Associated Press issued a story yesterday (Monday) entitled “Iran moves closer to nuke warhead capacity [1].” It was full of inaccurate and misleading information implying that Iran had admitted trying to enrich weapons-grade nuclear material. The story appeared on a wide variety of media.

Last night, Antiwar.com news editor Jason Ditz issued a story refuting the AP story [2].

This morning, Associated Press recalled the story without explanation and replaced it with another, much less inflamatory story [3] written by a different author.

It is important to question the mainstream media and not let them get away with helping the warmongers with their agenda.
