The Press Can’t Get Over Its ’16 Words’ Fixation

This time it’s the LA Times claiming that:

In his January 2003 State of the Union address, President Bush said Iraq had sought uranium for nuclear weapons from Niger, in West Africa.

What the Prez said was:

The British Government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.

As expected, Patterico wouldn’t let it slide.

The LA Times, however, won’t correct. So the LA Times deliberately chooses to remain wrong. That’s why they’re part of the Formerly Mainstream Media.


UPDATE: Oh, and in case there are still holdouts on something long since settled, the sixteen words were, and therefore still are, true.
