    This is from the Wall Street Journal, so conservative its hard for me to read-- anyway recently we've been having some heated debates about the state of affairs in Iraq, and how the "vast majority" of troops think Iraq is going well, and any dissenting view is a minority report, and the two or three articles that color the war badly have been dismissed because of the reporter's "agenda". Well, to throw another piece of meat into the shark tank, here's a 'dissenting' view from the uber-conservative Wall Street Journal. I'm posting it to rid the discussion of the "liberal agenda" facet of the dialogue, which I find to be far-fetched and unhelpful.

    This is just one reporter's viewpoint.

    NE, just out of curiousity: do you ever refer to the "arch-liberal" New York Times or the "uber-liberal" CBS News?
