Making Conservatives Cringe Since 1977

I'm not Liberal, I'm paying attention.

Damn Liberal Media

Conservatives are fond of claiming that the media exaggerates the problems in Iraq, but as near as I can tell exactly the opposite is true. Every time I've come across a candid report from a journalist — usually after they've come home, or perhaps in a private email or a report of an overheard conversation — they say that things are actually worse than what they officially report. Lots of people with a feel-good agenda go to Iraq for a few days of McNamara-like "fact finding" and then come back with glowing reports, but virtually no one who's there full time doing comprehensive reporting has anything very optimistic to say.Kevin Drum
