Thomas Sowell: Fourth estate or fifth column

GREAT COLUMN BY SOWELL, WHO TAKES THE MSM PRESS TO TASK FOR SIDING WITH OUR ENEMIES IN THEIR REPORTING OF THE WAR AND TERROR AND WAR IN IRAQ...

"There are still people in the mainstream media who profess bewilderment that they are accused of being biased. But you need to look no further than reporting on the war in Iraq to see the bias staring you in the face, day after day, on the front page of the New York Times and in much of the rest of the media.

If a battle ends with Americans killing a hundred guerrillas and terrorists, while sustaining ten fatalities, that is an American victory. But not in the mainstream media. The headline is more likely to read: "Ten More Americans Killed in Iraq Today."
