Shut it Down: Haiti Edition

Media inquiry from NBC News

Hi Ian,

I’m seeking comment for NBC News for an article we’re writing about the allegations of cannibalism in Haiti.

I see that you are tweeting on this subject frequently in recent days, seemingly treating the allegations as fact. Can you tell me the basis for your tweets? Is it only that one article in the British Star/Express with the single unnamed source?

Do you have any further comment on why you’re choosing to discuss this and what evidence you’ve seen?

Many thanks.

David just wants to give Ian the chance to tell his side of the story. Because surely Ian knows better than to tweet on the basis of an allegation contained in a single news article published by the mainstream media!
