More Fake Schiavo Memo Business.

Michelle Malkin is still diligently covering the story of the alleged "GOP memo" on Terri Schiavo:

ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH SLAPS THE WASHINGTON POST UPSIDE THE HEAD


WASHINGTON POST DIGS IN
:

Incredibly, Post News Service editors still refuse to issue a correction, even though the reporter who co-authored the article has now requested one.

Wizbang adds:

It's like media musical chairs, and the music is about to stop playing...

Nobody wants to take the blame for erroneously reporting about the "GOP memo." Howard Kurtz of The Washington Post really just needs to own up and offer the correction already.

Powerline asserts:

...the original story was wrong, and a correction is necessary--not only by the Post, but by every newspaper that ran the incorrect story, and by the many columnists that picked up on the fake story and used it to beat up on the Senate Republicans.

One sad legacy of this particular bit of reporting is its contribution to the partisan circus around Terri Schiavo's final days. Her death should have never been a partisan issue, but the inaccurate reporting on the "GOP memo" opened the floodgates for far-left groups to pounce.

Poor reporting and bad polls helped frame a false consensus for Terri Schiavo's death. What an unfortunate imprint The Washington Post leaves on this issue.

UPDATE:

More, from The Weekly Standard.

That is so sad that the liberal main stream media felt compelled to assert their death crusade in on the Terri Schiavo Case! I was just over at whizbang and Michell's . This was so not partisan, political or anything other than a total disgrace to this poor woman and her family. It will always be a total abomination that our judicial system could really have allowed this to happen. This is our country! That is what is so surprising to me...But what else can we expect when we have scum of the earth death crusading #1 attorneys working with all that money Terri was awarded for her care! That really bugs me. I hope Judge Greer is investigated for allowing that?

I heard on the radio this morning Terri's family attended a funeral mass for her with over 800 people attending... Michael Schiavo was still hanging on to her cremated remains, and would not allow the remains at the funeral mass for terri!
I suppose that was her wish too?
