Journal Sentinel Gets Mining Video Story Wrong

by Jerry Bader

This, of course, could be a honest mistake. But did Stein see the video that was posted Thursday before going with the "nothing new to see here citizens, move along," meme? As Ethan points out, the link Stein provides to prove the Journal-Sentinel posted the video a month ago links to another newspaper story. Did he simply assume the conservative sites were posting nothing new when they posted this   And how much journalistic integrity is there in changing the story without admitting what is a moderate to significant error?
