The front-page story in today's Washington Times about Russian involvement in the taking of weapons from al-Qaqaa could prove a real setback for the Kerry campaign--that is, if it is going to be covered elsewhere at all. For while the Times is running this story by Bill Gertz (and also linked by Drudge), CNN/Netscape News is running this headline instead: "Rebels: US Intel Helped Remove Missing Weapons."
So do we report what the Pentagon is saying or what the insurgents are saying? For some, this is a very tough call.
