. . . . The message is from Ian Williams, who has written about the region extensively, including an article from Ed Vulliamy on the suit and LM propaganda. I am against the right of the state to assess economic damages against a newspaper for political reporting, but on the issue of truth, it is worth noting that a jury was unconvinced by LM's reporting. -- Nathan Newman

But was the issue whose version of the history is accurate, or whether LM's description of ITN's coverage was accurate? There could have been as horrible a genocide as one could imagine, but that is irrelevant to whether ITN faked a news report and LM accurately exposed this fact.
