    yep they did not do a good job in hiding their agenda.

    Death here , death there, milkman in China kidnapped ......

    Was it supposed to be about the positive aspect of a new Iraqui goverment.
    No too positive for Todd Pitman.


    Ugh.

    journalism reaches new lows every day.

    It bleeds, it leads...An age old rule of journalism.

    The lead wasn't the 'bleed.' Both AP and Reuter's have been doing this for a few years, combining stories to put down any possible positive news.

    Never let it be said that you failed to leap to liberalism's defense. Doesn't it get tiring - being wrong all the time? I guess I can relate - being a lifelong Cincinnati Bengals fan.
