Lopsided Iraq Coverage

Posted in Iraq,Media Bias by Ryan on the October 26th, 2006

In a brief visit to CNN this morning, I find a video prominently featured on the homepage labeled, “Active duty troops speak out against Iraq war.”

A glimpse at the World section has an article titled, “Iraqi leader disputes U.S. account of raid on militia.”

And a quick visit to the Politics page features, “Bush acknowledges setbacks in Iraq.”

Nowhere on these main pages of did I see anything indicating that the United States Military is accomplishing military objectives.

Most hurtful and lopsided in my mind is the coverage of a minority of servicemen who don’t have the sense to leave the military when they disagree with a conflict. Rather, they use their service in the conflict to lend credibility to their opinions of National Security policy and propel them into the national spotlight. At least CNN obliges in doing this for them. Perhaps I should tell them I am going to write Congress and explain I support the war. Maybe I’ll be featured on a video on’s home page! Then again, they probably wouldn’t be caught dead with pro-war coverage, not even from US Soldiers who have served there.

Democratic “Strategy”

Ann Coulter has another classic article, taking it right to the Democrats. I enjoy her style that cuts so sharply to the point with her use of blatant facts that lay liberal schemes bare.

This year’s Democratic plan for the future is another inane sound bite designed to trick American voters into trusting them with national security.

Do you see this in the media?

This blog illuminated my understanding about what has happened in Iraq, what is happening and what will probably happen in the future. Before reading stuff they were writing, I thought Iraq was as terrible as it seemed on TV. There is a serious disparity in the amount of good vs. bad news coming out of Iraq in the MSM, and I think most of it is due to President Bush’s political affiliation. It seems only things the magnitude of bombing Zarqawi make it to the American people. Otherwise, just bad news.

Take heart! The US is making progress.
