Cole misinforms again

"The media's favourite Iraq commentator casually mentioned on his blog that the New York Times had a "super" article about Moktada Al Sadr.

The story, which tells readers that the "unrepentant guerrilla leader" had joined the Shiite slate in time for the December elections, says Al Sadr has a "zealous following." That could be true, that his followers are passionate about supporting the religious school flunkie. But the story gives the incorrect impression that a large part of the population supports Al Sadr, who the story says is becoming more powerful by the minute."
