In opening your paper, briefly describe the situation that led to the retraction by Newsweek. Consider the five questions that follow the case study in preparing your essay, but answer the following:
1. How much damage to individuals and national interests can potentially be indirectly caused by erroneous news reports like the Koran abuse story in Newsweek?
2. How could this reporting problem been avoided? What additional steps could the reporter have taken?
3. What precautions would you insist upon if you were the editor overseeing the production of the
Guantanamo Koran abuse story?
4. If the Koran abuse story had been true, would it have been justified to publish the story given the possible
or expected reaction in the Muslim world?
The paper must be two to three pages in length and formatted according to APA style. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page.
