Silence?

A bit of a kerfuffle this week. CNN reported Iranian President Rouhani’s comments about Israel and the Holocaust one way, and other papers (e.g.. WSJ) and the Iranian FARS News Agency reported it another. http://bit.ly/16zGA4U, http://nbcnews.to/18pZe1X, http://bit.ly/1fRvTTt

Leaving aside which translation from Persian is accurate, what does the dispute over its accuracy do to CNN’s brand?¬† And does Christiane Amanpour’s reputation as a journalist take a hit? What is the price of silence?
