Journalist who wrote fake Iran story invited to White House

If you're a journalist looking to gain the respect of the administration, the lesson here is to make up stories that support their agenda.

From Molly Ivins:

Two weeks ago, Amir Taheri had an op-ed article in the Canadian National Post claiming the Iranians have a law requiring Jews to wear yellow badges. It turned out to be a complete fabrication and has been the subject of much contempt among bloggers. So Tuesday, Taheri was invited to the White House along with other "experts" to give the president their "honest opinions." With advice like that, our war in Iran will be a slam dunk.
