As usual, CNN seems to have forgotten some journalism basics. Quote marks indicate quotations, right?
A clip begins of now-resigned Donald Rumsfeld giving his take on Iraq. He says the war in Iraq was not going:
well enough, or fast enough
At the same time, the little textual block at the bottom of the screen gives a summary of what is happening. It attributes to Rumsfeld the following position:
Iraq war is not going “well or fast enough”
It would seem to me that the quote was abbreviated to fit on the screen, in quite an obvious way. If they’re changing quotes here to fit their publishing needs, where else are they messing with?
Mistakes happen, of course, but when was the last time you saw a correction in broadcast news? They don’t admit their mistakes either.
