LGF is outraged that the Pulizer Prize for Breaking News Photography was awarded to the Associated Press — you know, one of those MSM organisations whose local stringers in Iraq have been putting their necks on the line to provide blog-fodder for those of us in our pyjamas.

The problem, it seems, is that one of the AP pictures was the subject of unsubstantiated allegations of an AP stringer’s complicity with insurgents at the time that it was taken.

It’s worth revisiting Dead Parrot Society’s fairly comprehensive demolition of the demonization memes surrounding the AP’s Haifa Street photograph, in part because the telling and re-telling of the slanted version of this episode until it is established as fact belies the myth of the self-correcting blogosphere.

Update: Dead Parrot Society has added a powerful post on this today.
