What Do We Really Know About Osama Bin Laden’s Death?

This article from Jonathan Mahler for the New York Times touches on everything I’m interested in: big policy, big stories, and discrepancies. Thankfully, it’s completely free of conspiratorial nonsense, instead relying upon the differences in coverage between more official accounts and Seymour Hersh’s blockbuster article in the London Review of Books earlier this year. This is fascinating, purely from a media critic standpoint.

Update: Mark Bowden vehemently disagreed with Mahler’s depiction, arguing that his column wades far too deeply into conspiratorial territory.
