"Our enemies have skillfully adapted to fighting wars in today's media age, but for the most part we — our country, our government — has not adapted," he said.(Rumsfeld)
One more time, for posterity.
The modern mainstream media knows four or five basic stories.
1. Vietnam War
2. Protesting the Vietnam War
3. Watergate/presidential scandal
4. Hurricane smashes coast, minorities hardest hit
5. Crap which isn't Earth-shaking national/international news like movie stars, divorces, the latest pretty white woman murder, hunting accidents... The MSM Looney Tunes bias in reporting other issues relates to their star-****ing, IMO.
MSM terrorist coverage would slot into numbers two-four. They basically support anti-American forces, no matter how retrograde or bloody. See, NVA, KJI, Stalin, Che, Saddam, Ahmadinejad, The Dread Cartoons of Blasphemy, HAMAS, or Al-Sadr.
