Shock: MSM Headlines Deliberately Distort Duelfer's "No Transfer to Syria" Claim

No evidence of an official transer, he wrote.

But...

The group also said it had been unable to complete its investigation because of security concerns and couldn't rule out an "unofficial" transfer of material.

Funny... I don't remember seeing anything about that in a headline, or even a sub-hed. At least not before a blogger bothered to read the report.

Yeahp... bloggers are just a bunch of overcaffeinated, overopinionated morons who can't read official government reports like the geniuses making up our press corps.

We're just too glib and too lacking in "nuance." Unlike the MSM, which takes great pains to get the stories "100% accurate" in all their particulars and never deliberately leaves out important qualifications in order to slant a story to their liking.

Via Instapundit, who writes on a fifth-grade level.

You need to be This Tall to enter this blog. With Instapundit, anyone can get on, like that queerbait teacup ride for kids.

Adding "Nuance": VonKreedon has difficulty discerning the main story/headine/bulletpoint from something buried in a story and not very loudly trumpted by the MSM, as usual. So I edited to note the headlines and sub-heds all seemed to omit this key fact.
