The Guardian has added a significant correction to its recent interview with journalist Seymour Hersh.
Don't even get him started on the New York Times which, he says, spends "so much more time carrying water for Obama than I ever thought they would" - or the death of Osama bin Laden. "Nothing's been done about that story, it's one big lie, not one word of it is true," he says of the dramatic US Navy Seals raid in 2011.
People naturally took notice of one of the biggest investigative journalists around appearing to allege some sort of conspiracy surrounding bin Laden's death.
Apparently, there was more to the story, as Poynter's "Regret the Error" blog reported on Monday. The Guardian later posted a note to its piece. The note read in part:
Hersh has pointed out that he was in no way suggesting that Osama bin Laden was not killed in Pakistan, as reported, upon the president's authority: he was saying that it was in the aftermath that the lying began.
Note: Hersh's son, Joshua, is Middle East correspondent for The Huffington Post.
