I agree that there's bad precedent set when messing with the Fourth 
Estate.  As for Newsweek's bad reportage not killing anyone, I guess 
we'll never know; if I had my name on that story, however, it wouldn't 
easy sleeping nights for some time to come.  Blowing a story like this 
plays into the hands of those who believe that the press is spending 
more resources on begging to be relevant than in telling us what they see.
