John O'Sullivan in the Chicago Sun-Times:

Admittedly, reporters and editors make mistakes. But when all the mistakes are on the side of opposing the liberation of Iraq, and none of the mistakes favor the United States or Britain or Bush or Blair, it tells you something.

Namely, which side they're on.

Does John Sullivan live in Chicago, Longtime Democratic Fortress? If so, he's a brave man. And a smart one!

This reminds me of when the grocery store misprices an item on the shelf. It always seems that the problem works to the store's advantage. That makes it hard to believe that the error is a natural random error. It seems far more likely that they are inclined to cheat you.

When the media make reporting mistakes; is it just the kind of random error that occurs from time-to-time? Or is it because their news coverage is tainted by their policy biases against the war?

Which explanation seems more credible to you?

Peace and Freedom for an Independent Iraq

On who's side is Ahmed Chalibi and on who's side are the morons who listened to him?

Why don't you tell us, Bwave Twoll?

Great to read a brave voice of reason. I'm sick to death of all the blathering about the Iraqi prisoners. It's been more than shoved down our throats.

Since there was no outcry, as we see now, when Saddam&Sons were in charge, I conclude the media don't really care about Iraqi prisoners. CNN even admitted it hushed up a lot of abuses just so they could remain in Iraq.

Mr "wmd",

Engage brain BEFORE posting.

It's not that hard.

Quentin: It is if your clutch is worn and slipping. My guess is that running his mouth-equivalent while riding the clutch has left Mr. wmd with severe slippage and probably a very funny smell. Maybe he should go into the shop.

How about "wmd" goes to the scrapyard? Probably all the parts are worn out from spinning in circles.
