Iraqi Elections - People in Iraq go to the polls very soon. I've decided that on this story, I'm not going to watch any mainstream media coverage on television. CNN and MSNBC were pushing the US Embassy attack pretty hard today. Our local paper, the BDN, had a headline that was simply obscene in size (top of the fold, to boot) to trumpet the deaths in a helicopter crash. The media wants the Iraq war to fail, because such an event would make Bush look bad.
Never mind the millions of people who would be affected by a country being taken over by terrorists. Never mind the chaos and violence that would follow a US troop withdrawl. Let those Iraqis suffer for the "greater good" of scoring political points. The sickness that has infected the Democrats and the media is surprising in its vehemence. From insulting the vice president's fashion sense to nearly celebrating (yes, the BDN front page was that sickening) the deaths of American soldiers, the media and some in the Democrat party have lost their moral center.
I think I'll get my news from the web and blogs tomorrow. To give you an idea of how bad the major media is, right now MSNBC is playing a documentary on the life of Saddam Hussein.
