Katrina Takes a Toll on Truth, News Accuracy - Los Angeles Times: "'It just morphed into this mythical place where the most unthinkable deeds were being done,' Bush said Monday of the Superdome.
His assessment is one of several in recent days to conclude that newspapers and television exaggerated criminal behavior in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, particularly at the overcrowded Superdome and Convention Center.
The New Orleans Times-Picayune on Monday described inflated body counts, unverified 'rapes,' and unconfirmed sniper attacks as among examples of 'scores of myths about the dome and Convention Center treated as fact by evacuees, the media and even some of New Orleans' top officials.'"
That's not GWBush. You know it's bad if LA Times can figure it out.
