Nice critique of the war coverage. I read an article the other day attacking Andrew Sullivan for saying that the BBC was conspiring to claim that America was committing war crimes, etc. Which of course wasn't what Sullivan or this guy were saying. They're saying that there is a pervasive political culture within the mainstream media which is strongly leftwing and anti-Bush and it causes them to report the news according to their political prejudices. Go to any journalism school and you will see this being encouraged. Most journalism schools today teach that objectivity is a false value and that a journalist has a responsibility to report the news in a manner so as to "change the world". This is, of course, merely ivy league code for "report leftist propaganda".
