  •  that's a huge relief. I wouldn't completely (11+ / 0-)

    blame 'western media'--it was really global media that grabbed a story from one source and ran with it--and credit to another 'western media' source--Time--for pretty quickly setting the story straight (I'm sure they weren't the first--but they did a good job)

    I agree with you that it is a testament to the decline in investigative reporting and corroboration in many news outlets that the story ran as quickly as it did (social media as well--I was guilty as anyone else of posting it on fb)

    anyway, this is all great news--and thanks for posting.
