Hersh: Bin Laden Raid Fabricated

Pulitzer-Prize-winning reporter Seymour Hersh lambasted fellow journalists as timid water-carriers, more interested serving higher ups than seeking out truth, in an interview with the Guardian. The 76-year-old, best known for his reporting on the My Lai massacre in Vietnam and prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib, railed against journalists he says are too soft on Obama. One of the stories he complains that no one is questioning: the Navy Seal raid that killed Osama bin Laden. "Nothing's been done about that story, it's one big lie, not one word of it is true," Hersh said. He suggested the only fix for the broken profession is firings all around. Newspapers should get rid of 90 percent of “chicken-shit editors,” he said, and as for TV, he would, “close down the news bureaus of the networks and let's start all over, tabula rasa.”
