CNN, CBS Say Money Didn’t Go to Al Qaeda

CNN and CBS News both say they paid for videotape that depicts al Qaeda activities, but add that they’re certain the money has not ended up in the hands of Osama bin Laden’s terror network.

CNN, which scored a coup when it began running some of the footage Sunday night, beating out CBS, saw the focus of discussion shift from the tapes themselves to the question of whether the cable network had deliberately misled the New York Times and the Associated Press on the issue of payment for them.
