Corrective to “Reuters busted as a propaganda outlet for the Pentagon”

You may recall my sending out this article, from Russia Insider, on Reuters.  

In researching my piece on the NYTimes' stomach-turning interview with Helene Cooper,I went back to this article on Reuters, thinking that I might include this scandal with the others that Cooper should look into as the paper's Pentagon correspondent; and I couldfind no reference to the Pentagon per se in any other outlet, nor any evidence to backRussia Insider's claim about a covert Reuters/Pentagon relationship.

So while Reuters was forced to retract its bogus claims about a Russian/Venezuelan"scheme" to evade US sanctions, there seems to be no grounds for asserting thatthe Pentagon is pulling Reuters' strings. (Of course, it may be doing so, but so farthat is only speculation.)
