Re: Re: Re: An astonishing statement by a high US official This is the "everyone else is crazy, I'm not" logical fallacy. By definition, if the vast majority of something are in one category, then they are the mode--the mainstream. That makes Fox and its small ilk very much outside it. The traditional media are in the middle and Fox is very much on the right. The opposite is true of radio, where Air America is very much on the left, with Limbaugh, Liddy, and those guys in the mainstream. The question is, where is America? Where it always is, all over the place. Rather than left or right, or even right or wrong, I prefer true or false. And I get sick of the lies being told by this administration and its toadies at Fox and on the radio. Lies. Nothing short. They excoriate Newsweek for two lines in an article that weren't accurate. (That a report would appear regarding the flushing of copies of the Koran. The report didn't contain it--but there are many other reports that it has occurred.) Fine. Newsweek got something wrong. It happens when you report the news. It is a mistake and they should own up to it. But where is the Bush Administration? Why don't they own up to the fact that they got everything WRONG about Iraq? The Iraqis would welcome us as liberators, that Iraqi oil revenues would pay for the recovery, that there were WMD's. Why hasn't the Bush Administration come out and apologize to the American people on any of that? Newsweek was attempting to print the truth and they got it wrong. I expect news media to get it right. (Truth.) I also expect my government to get it right. It didn't, and won't admit their mistakes. That is "FALSE" in my book. Not right-wing, not left-wing, just plain ol' FALSE. You can talk about bias in the media all you want. It doesn't matter. What matters is whether or not what is being presented is true. We should hold governments (Democratic and Republican) to the same standard.
