Default Kuwait Times Issues Retraction

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='' target='_blank'>http://theonlinephotographer.typepa...retraction.html</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"The Kuwait Times, original source of the "news" that Kuwait had banned the use of DSLRs by non-journalists, has issued a retraction, which I quote here in full."</em></p><p>The retraction can be read at the link on The Online Photographer, and this is the reason why I did not post the news initially when it was breaking out on the blogosphere and even the mainstream news. Kuwait is one of the more progressive (or less conservative depending on your viewpoint) Middle East countries, and such a blanket ban seemed somewhat out of the blue.</p><p>In any case, this teaches us all to be critical of what we read; just because it is in a book, newspaper, or on the Internet, it isn't always true!</p>

My God, are you saying in their haste to be first, they aren't always concerned over whether it is right?

Funny, the original "news" was repeated EVERYWHERE. The retraction, well, this is the only of the many blogs that I read that had it. Another symptom of our post-first-reason-later society. Thanks, Yuan, for keeping it real and for posting the actual News (with a capital N) first. You just got another thumbs up on my "good guy" ticker.
