Skip to comments.Globe Cartoon Clings to Phony Study of Iraqi Civilian Deaths
Posted on 10/25/2006 4:06:26 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
A study - released by its anti-war partisan authors just in time for the election - claiming that more than 650,000 Iraqi civilians have died as a result of the war has been debunked more times than Paris Hilton has been . . . well, let's just say the study has been debunked often and thoroughly, as noted here.
But that doesn't prevent a member-in-good-standing of the MSM from shamelessly recyclying the phony numbers. Have a close look at this editorial cartoon from today's Boston Globe by house cartoonist Dan Wasserman. President Bush is shown declaring that, among other problems in Iraq, there are "hundreds of thousands dead."
Not only does the Globe endorse the meretricious study, it descends into absurdity by imagining that President Bush, of all people, would do the same. The Globe employs the Big Lie theory - with cartoon figures.
