The problem for Newsweek, not unlike when CBS made up a story about President Bush’s National Guard service that was based on fraudulent documents, is that the damage has been done and people died over their reporting.
Mark Whitaker, the editor of Newsweek who reportedly told the author of the piece, Michael Isacoff, that his resignation would not be accepted over this matter, artfully worded the retraction to make read as if it was a simple typing mistake instead of treason and libel against our troops.
Congratulations Newsweek and the Dan Rather and Mary Mapes team: the latter received their Peabody and a standing ovation from their colleagues for bashing American troops because of the actions of a few bad apples.

Newsweek clearly erred in its sourcing, but the White House is committing a far greater sin in ignoring the overwhelming evidence of U.S. abuse of Muslim detainees.
Newsweek's single source had suddenly decided he was not a profile in courage and informed the reporter that he was no longer certain of his previous assertion.
Newsweek's item appeared soon after a new book providing just such a firsthand account was published, "Inside the Wire" by Erik Saar, a former Army interpreter at Guantánamo, with Viveca Novak, a correspondent for Time magazine.

Newsweek told Starr's deputies that the magazine was planning to run with the story in the issue that appeared that Monday.
Newsweek agreed to wait until Friday afternoon, in part because the magazine was reluctant to interfere with an ongoing federal investigation and in part because the editors believed that Newsweek would learn more about the truth behind the story by waiting.

NEW YORK — Newsweek magazine, under fire for publishing a story that led to deadly protests in Afghanistan, said today it was retracting its report that a military probe had found evidence of desecration of the Quran by U.S. interrogators at Guantanamo Bay.
Newsweek had reported in its May 9 issue that U.S. military investigators had found evidence that interrogators placed copies of Islam’s holy book in washrooms and had flushed one down the toilet to get inmates to talk.
Newsweek Washington Bureau Chief Daniel Klaidman said the magazine believed it erred in reporting the allegation that a prison guard tried to flush the Quran down a toilet and that military investigators had confirmed the accusation.

 CNN.com - Newsweek retracts Quran story - May 16, 2005
He said everyone at Newsweek "behaved professionally" in producing the report, and that the magazine went to the "extraordinary length" of showing the story to a Pentagon official for a response before publication.
But Newsweek said only a single source was used and that after the original article was published, the government source said he wasn't sure what he'd read about the desecration.
Newsweek's article was not the first time allegations of Quran desecration at Guantanamo have surfaced, but others have come directly from detainees.

 Newsweek: Rove gave Time reporter OK to testify
Newsweek quoted an e-mail from the reporter to his boss that showed Rove had discussed Plame and her husband, Joseph Wilson, a former ambassador, with Cooper.
Newsweek says that while the e-mail shows that Rove talked to Cooper about the couple, the e-mail doesn't suggest that Rove revealed Plame's name or CIA status.
The Newsweek article quotes Cooper's e-mail as saying, "it was, KR said, Wilson's wife, who apparently works at the agency on wmd [weapons of mass destruction] issues who authorized the trip."

Written by Newsweek senior editor Howard Fineman and White House correspondent Martha Brant, the profile of the Bushes focuses relentlessly positive attention on the "First Couple's" emotional responses to the September 11 attacks.
Newsweek says that the White House spin machine had nothing to do with their portrayal of Bush.
For a major newsweekly to turn an exclusive interview with the president into a puff piece would be disappointing under any circumstances, but it is particularly so at a time when the U.S. government is taking extreme measures to cloak controversial military and law enforcement actions in secrecy, both at home and abroad.

 Riding Sun: Newsweek: America is dead   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Newsweek's false, retracted story about American guards flushing the Koran down a toilet at Guantanamo doesn't necessarily mean the magazine's staff hates America or Bush, or wants us to lose in Iraq.
The problem is that Newsweek doesn't have the courage of its convictions to actually criticize as a friend would, to the face.
5/23/2005 07:37:07 AM Newsweek might be trash talking America but it has not put any kind of dent in the number of people over there who are scrambling to get here by applying for visas or risking their lives as stowaways in freight containers and trailer trucks or by attempting dangerous nighttime border crossings.

Newsweek magazine should forthwith compensate the Afghans who died as a result of their baseless, and I mean baseless, story.
Greater damage still is the ill-will that has wrongfully spread by this "news" magazine, which may indirectly cause or prevent the frustration of a future terrorist incident.
The so-called apology offered by Newsweek, with its unreprentant undertones, falls far short of controlling the damage they themselves are responsible for; not merely to their reputation, of which there is little left to save, but to the lives that have been shattered and will yet be.

Newsweek are committed in their foresight and commited in alerting their audience to risk.

 t r u t h o u t - NewsWeek | The Death Convoy of Afghanistan
NEWSWEEK's extensive inquiries of prisoners, truckdrivers, Afghan militiamen and local villagers--including interviews with survivors who licked and chewed each other's skin to stay alive--suggest also that many hundreds of people died.
Nothing that NEWSWEEK learned suggests that American forces had advance knowledge of the killings, witnessed the prisoners being stuffed into the unventilated trucks or were in a position to prevent that.
Officials across the administration did not respond to repeated requests by NEWSWEEK for a detailed accounting of U.S. activities in the Konduz, Mazar-e Sharif and Sheberghan areas at the time in question, and Defense Department spokespersons have made statements that are false.

 AlterNet: MediaCulture: Scapegoating Newsweek
Newsweek's blunder means zip when compared to the fabrications given the American public to justify the war in the first place.
While Newsweek should have known better than to rely on a statement vetted by the Pentagon, it is unfair to cast Newsweek as a knowinging party that chose to deceive.
Newsweek used as a source a "senior government official," normally a Cabinet secretary or someone fairly close to that rank, who had previously been a reliable source.

 Poynter Online - Between Apology and Retraction
Sunday, Newsweek said it was sorry -— but was not retracting its story about alleged desecration of the Quran by American troops at Guantanamo Bay.
Whitaker told Ted Koppel on "Nightline" that Newsweek's story was "the match that lit that tinder." By Tuesday morning, ABC News was attributing to the Bush administration the conclusion that the riots were a direct response to the magazine story.
That's why Newsweek's nonretraction-retraction is going to continue to cause problems and is just as bad as CBS's nonretraction-retraction in the Rather story, except this one is dangerous.

Third, no one at Newsweek questioned that religious desecration was a tool of interrogation sanctioned by the U.S. government, maybe because they wanted to believe it.
