WRKO Boston Cancels Newsweek Show

Is it possible there could be consequences for a major Media Outlet ie. Newsweek to engage in shoddy reporting? I looked outside and saw no flying pigs nor did the weather forecast say anything about hell freezing over, but here it is....

Per WND:
A major Boston talk-radio station cancelled Newsweek's weekly program due to the magazine's false report that U.S. interrogators desecrated the Quran at Guantanamo Bay by flushing one in the toilet.

Newsweek On Air" no longer will be broadcast on WRKO-AM, the station said in a statement today, according to a report by radio blogger Brian Maloney.

WRKO's schedule now shows "TBA" in place of the Newsweek program in its Sunday 9 p.m. timeslot.

Not much, but it's a start.
