Dude, Where's My Baiji?
The New York Times has this headline today: 'Suicide Bomber Kills 17 At Feast Near Baghdad'. The attack occurred in the village of Hajaj, near the oil refinery town of Baiji, according to the report. By any measure, Baiji couldn't possibly be referred to as a place "near Baghdad" (...there's a stretch of 100 miles between the two cities). Going by scale, it's as if one reports an event from New York City and identifies the locale as a place "near Washington DC".
The NYT wants its readers to believe that Baghdad is still aflame, and will go to ridiculous lengths to leave that impression, including moving towns around the map.
I guess, by that measure, we should be thankful that the Times didn't emblazon its front-page with 'Bhutto Assassinated at a Rally Near Baghdad'.
