    Subordinating the Truth

    As I was watching President Bush's latest news conference, I was struck by the thought of how different the news climate and public mood would be if the mainstream media were truly as unbiased as they pretend to be.

    If the MSM were indeed objective, and animated by an investigative impulse and a nonpartisan, government-watchdog instinct, they might thoroughly cover and inquire into the following:

    Why Joe Wilson appears to have lied when he denied that his wife, Valerie Plame, recommended him to the CIA to investigate the claim that Saddam Hussein sought uranium yellowcake from Niger. They might also examine Wilson's bragging about debunking certain forged documents on his trip – documents that were not even discovered until eight months later.

    Sen. Durbin's unconscionable likening of America's treatment of terrorist detainees to the treatment of prisoners by Pol Pot, the Nazi regime and the Soviet Gulags.

    Why one of its own standard bearers, the vaunted New York Times, sat on the surveillance "scandal" story until the week Congress was debating reauthorization of the Patriot Act.

    Where Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid gets off demanding an independent investigation about this NSA surveillance – a practice that essentially began under President Clinton and about which Reid and his colleagues were privy to a dozen briefings.

    How Democratic leaders have continually accused President Bush of lying to get us into war when they had access to the same WMD intelligence as President Bush and voted to authorize him to attack Iraq.

    Why only a handful of Democratic senators availed themselves of their access to certain detailed reports on Iraqi WMD.

    for proof about how damaging the MSM is to the country's morale, just look ta the president's poll numbers. Every time he makes a speech saying exactly what he means, his numbers go up. Anytime he sits back and lets the MSM say whatever about him, the numbers go down. Imagine if they really were unbiased. We might actually live in a country where objectivity and free thought were allowed.
