McClatchy reporter blames the Army for the media's poor reporting after the Fort Hood shooting

I missed this item from a week and a half ago. On the Nukes and Spooks blog, McClatchy reporter Nancy Youssef blames the Army for the media getting so many facts wrong after the Fort Hood shooting. But Youssef doesn't explain why McClatchy's first report on the shooting didn't mention the shooter's religion or that he had expressed sympathy with attacks on the US -- even though these facts were widely known before the McClatchy piece was published, as I noted here.

All of the confusion about facts seems have kept McClatchy from reporting the truth.

Poor MNI can't get the critical fact right and is working overtime to fix the blame somewhere else.
