- Hersh is correct that much of the corporate media coverage of the administration's Syria case was simply not all that skeptical, treating what were claims offered without evidence as if they were facts.

December 9, 2013 | A new piece by veteran investigative reporter Seymour Hersh argues that the Obama administration's case against Syria over a sarin gas attack last August relied on cherry-picked intelligence.
Hersh's piece was not published in the New Yorker, where so much of his work appears. And it apparently was not of interest to the Washington Post either (Huffington Post, 12/8/13). Instead, Hersh's article appears in the London Review of Books (12/8/13).
