"Alleged" News Agency

Here are the pictures of the Pakistani terrorist, Ajmal Amir Kasab, roaming around in CST with a machine gun. Here is the video of their encounter with police in the railway station , captured on CCTV. Still the headline on CNN reads, Alleged Mumbai attacker seeks Pakistani help.

They say, a picture is worth a thousand words and a video clip, a gazillion words. Still CNN can’t get the important word right.

    It is a legal technicality, if I am right. But then again, Indian media is inconsistent when it comes to “alleging” people.

    I guess the reason is that they got this video from a non CNN source, without formal authentication. So like Arby said it could be legal issues.
