    For once, CBS didn't jump the shark, but the bias is still rampant from those 'creating' the stories:

    There are some clips from the al queda video for comparison, here:

    This is now screaming across the blogosphere, for good reason. My guess is that before long, poor Laura is going to be looking for another position.

    For a more balanced look than you can find on the tube here are a few bloggers that have embedded:

    Al-Jazeera has less bias than CBS. CBS clearly has an agenda. I don't doubt that Al-Jazeera does as well, but since it doesn't mesh with the liberal mass media, you get a much more balanced view of the world from their website & TV station. Really... I'm not kidding. Where there is bias is in their editorials & cartoons, but I think that's where bias belongs... not in what is reported or how it is reported.

    I think the answers to those questions are quite clear. Admitting that Al Qaeda is in Iraq would be viewed as backing up what Bush has been saying about any "redeployment" being worse for America than staying & finishing the job. Likewise, "insurgents" is a media-invented phrase that is practically meaningless... vagueness is the new clarity.:rolleyes:


    As always, excellent posts, Kathianne.:clap2:
