Iraq Media Bias

Answering the charge that coverage of the Iraq war has been biased, mainstream media spokespersons are offering up yet another collective, “Moi?” Yet what if the media reported a basketball game by only announcing when one side made a basket or forced a turnover, and ignored anything good the other team did? That’s what current Iraq coverage looks like.

We only see the deaths caused by the cutthroats and thugs, only the mosque bombings, only the people who feel dissatisfied with progress. We seldom see coalition progress, coalition strategy, or the number of terrorists killed or jailed. No wonder public support is down.
