The good news you never hear
Andrew Sullivan provides a pointer to Arthur Chrenkoff's blog, where he has posted a four part (so far) article on what's going on in Iraq that you won't read in your paper or see on the TV news (basically anything that's positive.) Along with what the media distorts and what the media lies about, they also portray a distorted picture by not telling you anything at all about what is going right. What Arthur writes about is far too extensive to quote here, so I will just provide you with the links. Suffice it to say that you will come away with quite a different view of what's going on in Iraq than you may have now as a result of reading or watching the mainstream media news outlets.
The burning question the media should answer is why the average American has to spend hours and hours using search engines to track down positive information about Iraq. Why isn't the media telling this story? You don't suppose they have an agenda, do you?
