Detroit Newsistan Freudian Headline of the Day: It’s Official–Lebanon Now Part of Iran

By Debbie Schlussel
I love The Detroit Newsistan “editors”, their incredible “knowledge” of the world, and their excellent capitulation skills. Clueless Editorial Page Editor Nolan Finley made his editorial page the official occupied territory of Ayatollah Khomeini’s Navy spiritual leader Mohammed Ali Elahi, the criminal-record endowed head of Michigan CAIR Willis Delano Anthony, Jr. a/k/a Dawud Walid, and FBI award revokee, “former” Islamic terrorist, and marriage fraud perpetrator Imad Hamad.
And, as I’ve also noted, the papers other “editors” repeatedly gaffe their headlines. They once noted that the “West Bank” was in Pakistan. They’ve noted that Hillary Clinton and Osama were meeting. And in today’s print copy of the paper, they’ve officially recognized what Iran wants . . . that Lebanon is officially part of Iran:

Well, some would argue that now that America and Israel have allowed Hezbollah to take over, that Lebanon is, indeed, the newly-annexed part of the Iranian Shi’ite Islamic Empire.
Still, someone needs a geography lesson. And it’s not the readers. It’s the ones who pretend to know more than them. But don’t.

Nitpicking—guess you don’t watch Fox “news”—THEY are loaded with inaccuracies.
Just realised that Michelle Obama is the black version of YOU

So, revenge of the M@Ms thinks that Debbie Schussel has something to do with the accuracy of Fox news? Fox news doesn’t speak for everybody, just like Rush Limbaugh and Shaun Hannity and Michael Savage don’t speak for everybody, even though they have their followers and fans. And who cares if Fox news is sometimes inaccurate? So are the rest of the networks/news shows. They are a business, and care about ratings. Accuracy and even ideology comes in second. And all humans make mistakes.

Of course the news media are a business. It is frustrating to even have to say this, but they are a business whose mission, at least on paper, is supposed to be to report the news objectively. The fact that this point is in dispute among wide sections of the public does nothing except show how far we as a society have descended from that standard, and how much socialist/fascist ways of thinking have permeated our consciousness.
Printing textbooks is also a business, but again, at least theoretically, they are supposed to be objectively accurate, again, however, something less and less attainable today.

I have seen “mistakes” like this before and have always wondered if they were done on purpose either for a laugh or to see if anyone would notice.

I think the Beirut tag is where the story was physicaly posted from, not where the story is about. For example: an AP reporter sits in Beirut listening to Radio Tehran short wave broadcasts, then posts the news to the AP wire.
At least thats how they did it in the old days.
[TJ: NOPE. THEY GET LOCATIONS AND CITIES WRONG ALL THE TIME AT THE DETROIT NEWS. IRNA--THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC NEWS AGENCY--IS AS ADVANCED AS ANYONE. THEY PUT OUT PRESS RELEASES AND SEND E-MAILS AND POST ONLINE. IF YOU REALLY THINK THE AP REPORTER IN BEIRUT UNDERSTANDS FARSI AND LISTENS ON SHORTWAVE, THINK AGAIN. DS]
