The evil that American media ignores

This is actually a double-edged sword.

CBS broke all sorts of taboos by showing the Iraqi prisoner torture/humiliation photos on 60 Minutes II, justifying it by saying that it was important to show because of what it represents.

Of course, they haven't and aren't going to show the murder of Nick Berg. They are too busy looking over their shoulders with the FCC's "decency club" held high over their heads.

But seriously, there's the principle of the thing. It's easy enough for them to bash the President and the Administration, but when it comes to showing how truly evil these animals are, they drop the ball. They're not concerned -- they still got to bash Bush.

Not to worry though; Say Anything has the video if you really feel the need to see how evil these animals are.

All the media is corrupted, even if we get to see any data we will corrupt it.
We never seen what happened in vietnam or in irak or afganistan.

Both sides are the same, both sides kill human beings, no matter how "barbaric" may seem to the other part, both sides are murderers.

We┬┤re all violent creatures.

I'm sorry, but regardless of any percieved "corruption" - as you put it - does not give anyone the right to act as these predators have acted. And your attempt to shift blame is unconscionable.

The media is not at fault here. The media is doing their job. They are reporting on issues citizens NEED to know. To say the media is corrupt is crap. Bush is trying to pass off Berg's death as some sort of martyr and blaming the press all along the way.

This death is George Bush's fault. Add that to thousands more innocent Iraqis who have been killed since invading Iraq.

It's sick to see what this world is coming to.

If the media is doing their jobs, then tell me why they very quickly shoved Nick Berg's murder off of the newspaper page, and replaced it with more accusations and sordid pictures. Tell me why it is so important to "get Bush" and his people -- so vastly important that a terroristic murder of an innocent man in Iraq gets ignored?

Oh, then you blame the President for Berg's murder? I didn't see George Bush holding a knife to that man's throat, did you? I didn't hear George Bush wailing "Allah Akbar" on that tape over Nick Berg's dying screams; did you?

You didn't see those things, but it negates your agenda to ignore the truth.

Sorry. That won't wash here.
