The small falsehood that went by


Seems like a lost cause. It’s not just me. There were other American journalists around as well.



I reject the idea that working for the AP makes you more a journalist and somehow having a blog makes you less of one – you should too if you’re interested in reporting from a diversity of viewpoints. AP gets things wrong all the time and a good portion of its output is little more than stenography. In any case, I had reported from Haiti for online outlets and radio prior to the quake. I arrived four months prior.

But it’s clear the esteemed reporter-turned-author doesn’t care to correct it. His loss because his work surely stands on its own merits without the need for autobiographical exaggerations.
