Kudos to the “Jewish Week” newspaper for this “Yellow Journalism” report tracking to Benador Associates, an agent for some of the most prominent USA neofascists, the erroneous report that Iran was to require non-Muslims to wear particular colored clothing.
The article reports that even after the report was debunked the story continued to breathlessly reverberate through the media echo chamber.
“’You can’t have a war without a good disinformation campaign,’ opined Mathew Yglesias, of the liberal American Prospect Magazine. “
Thanks to “Talking Points Memo” for linking to the article.
