I based that post on a on a Wall Street Journal story quoted in Ha’aretz in the following way:
According to a Wall Street Journal report, the director of the movie, called "Innocence of Muslims," is an Israel-American, 52-year-old Sam Bacile, who wanted to show "Islam as a cancer." Mr. Bacile claims that 100 Jewish donors funded the movie to the tune of $5 million, the newspaper reported.
One of the most trusted news media organizations in the world is the Wall Street Journal. As I have repeatedly said in the past, I do not have the resources check out every story reported in the media. I therefore trust respected media like the WSJ to do the research for me. They usually get it right.
But I guess in this case, they may have erred. And if reports in other news media outlets are correct - the errors were huge and grossly misrepresented what the source of the violence was and what (and who) was responsible for it. I do not wish to compound their possible errors with a post of my own based on such gross misinformation. I apologize for the error.
An analysis of yesterday’s poll will follow shortly.
