CNN: LOST IN TRANSLATION?

CNN reports:

In an article published Sunday in her communist newspaper, Il Manifesto, Giuliana Sgrena wrote, “Our car was driving slowly,” and “the Americans fired without motive.”

[Update 2:17pm…Quote has been removed, but you can still see it here.]

Ok, now click on the link to CNN’s translation of Sgrena’s article. Notice anything strange? According to CNN’s translation, nowhere does Sgrena say what CNN says she said. In fact, she seems to say the opposite:

The car kept on the road, going under an underpass full of puddles and almost losing control to avoid them. We all incredibly laughed. It was liberating. Losing control of the car in a street full of water in Baghdad and maybe wind up in a bad car accident after all I had been through would really be a tale I would not be able to tell.

Reader Bob K. notes, “Almost losing control avoiding puddles? Doesn’t sound very slow to me.”

An editorial staffer at CNN.com in Atlanta said, “I don’t have an answer for you but I will message the London Bureau,” which wrote the article. We’ll be watching for an explanation.

Update: WE GET RESULTS! As I noted above, CNN has now changed its story and removed the initial quote. But as reader Bob K points out, it did so without making any mention of the change or providing an explanation as to how it appeared there in the first place.

The MSM. Pffffft!
