Andersen provides a detailed critique and correction of numerous errors of fact in the Daily Kos news story “Iceland’s on-going-revolution” by Deena Stryker (reposted on Truthout as “Why Iceland should be in the news, but is not”). In the first comment to Andersen’s article (August 27, 2011 at 1:11 p.m.; may not be visible in all browsers), Stryker acknowledged that her story was in error:
