where is the good news


Ok... Tell me the Good News... or point me to the "Good News" that is coming out of Iraq on a daily basis.

If you can't point to it then don't blame the "media" as a whole. Blame FOX News, and Scarbrough on MSNBC or Rush Or any of the ring wing radio and TV guys and gals. Blame the RingWing bloggers who spend their time critizing the Media and Left - while ignoring the "Good News"

Why aren't they all filling the airwaves with the GOOD NEWS?

Is it easier to critize than to provide the "Good News"?

Maybe it is...

This quote by The Weekly Standard's Matt Labash puts it quite well


"...While all these hand-wringing Freedom Forum types talk about objectivity, the conservative media likes to rap the liberal media on the knuckles for not being objective. We've created this cottage industry in which it pays to be un-objective. It pays to be subjective as much as possible. It's a great way to have your cake and eat it too. Criticize other people for not being objective. Be as subjective as you want. It's a great little racket...(link)."


In other words - They don't address the issue - they play the victim.

But what about the "Good News"?

            "Truth Tour"

What was that?... so ya say some RightWing talk show hosts are going to Iraq? Going on the "truth tour" bringing back the "Good News"

"Truth Tour" very orwellian...

too bad that "in war, truth is the first casualty".
