After the fall of Kabul, the US media reissued the 2010 New York Times front page article on Afghanistan's mineral wealth, based on a secret Pentagon memo and a 1977 Soviet geological map.

Search for Afghanistan's minerals using Yandex or Google and you will get dozens of articles written in the last few days that cite the magic number of $ 1 trillion.

Today's post talks about the source of trouble, how a low-fidelity article can serve as the starting point for a news release with deliberately distorted facts, how Pulitzer Prize-winning authors have no remorse for poorly written material, and about the media regurgitates it and reissues news from 2010.
