Indeed, it is sufficient since Bateman considers all the issues the journalists brought out. As I often tell my students, you'll be able to make a true comparison only if you take the trouble to actually read the book. It may, of course, make you uncomfortable. We often feel that way when we are confronted with details that contradict our preconceived notions.
I see nothing more that needs to be said about this subject, unless a list member has something substantial and productive to contribute.
People can interpret certain historical facts from different angle.
The Army claimed that it was an unintentional killing, but the
three reporters thought otherwise.
Interpretation is one thing; but to claim that the story was
fabricated is a more serious charge. By saying that, you are
defaming the authors if you are mistaken.
To justify your claim, you will have to show specific paragraphs
in their book where things have been falsified.
That is your burden to prove, not mine.
Just referring to another book will not be sufficient.
