Journalistic Integrity?

“UN secretary general urges Russia and China to ‘look beyond national interest’ and stop blocking proposals to help end [the Syrian] conflict…The UN secretary general told that Guardian that Russia and China should “look beyond national interest” and stop blocking security council action on the conflict in Syria as the flow of refugees to Europe reaches unprecedented levels.”

The Guardian can’t be any clearer in reporting what the UN Secretary-General actually said, can it?...Except, for one fact and by its own admission further into the article it concedes:

“Ban did not name Russia and China…”

So liberal press reporting makes putting words into politicians mouths acceptable journalism.
