Media Accuracy Watch

Another Katrina myth has been busted. Aaron Broussard’s emotional appearance on Meet The Press has been “corrected“, due to the efforts of John at WuzzaDem who didn’t think the story passed the smell test.

This evening there’s a new story from the UK tabloid The Mirror, claiming that tons of British aid donated to help Hurricane Katrina victims are to be BURNED by Americans.

…[T]ons of the badly needed Nato ration packs, the same as those eaten by British troops in Iraq, has been condemned as unfit for human consumption.

Leaving aside the obvious jokes about British cuisine, this story smells fishy.

Perhaps the blogosphere can shed some light on the validity of the Mirror’s claims.
