GRITtv: The F Word: Guantanamo Files Show Media Priorities
As I perused the latest WikiLeaks releases this morning, a retweet from their Twitter feed caught my eye:
“Gitmo: Compare the first paragraph of these two stories about the same thing.” One was a link to the BBC and one was CNN.
At the BBC, the title is “Wikileaks: Many at Guantanamo ‘Not dangerous'” and the first graf points out that the US believed many were innocent or only low-level operatives.
CNN’s piece, by contrast, says that the released documents “reveal extraordinary details about the alleged terrorist activities of Al Qaeda operatives” at Gitmo. Distributed by Tubemogul.
