Bombing of Funeral: False Reporting by Reuters

Bias? Incompetence? Personally I believe it's some of both and that's a dangerous combination.

The day after it was revealed Reuters News Agency doctored photographs that show an anti-Israel bias, the news service incorrectly reported Tuesday afternoon that the IDF bombed a funeral procession in Lebanon.Reuters has corrected without apology its earlier story that the

IDF strafed a funeral procession and updated the report to state that the bombs struck a village at the same time the funeral was taking place, adding that "the air strike was not in the immediate vicinity of the funeral."

Too late, damage done.
