Hi, I'm Bill O'Reilly. Thank you for watching us tonight.
Slanting the war coverage... That is the subject of this evening's Talking Points Memo.
Most military experts are saying the campaign in Iraq is an unprecedented success. The war is now six days old. The USA has losses of 20 dead and 14 captured or missing according to the Associated Press. The allies control most of the country and are knocking on the door of Saddam's bunker. But if you read The New York Times today, you might think Iraq was winning. The front page of the "Times" was full of ominous headlines. "Iraqis Repel Copters; One Goes Down." "GIs Regroup After Setback --Two Prisoners on Iraqi TV." "Hussein Rallies Iraqi Defenders." "The Goal Is Baghdad, but at What Cost?" All these headlines were on just one page. Unbelievable.

I have found CNN to be so anti-american , that it makes me beleive they are being controlled by the arab world. THe newscasters report with alook of dissain, continual coverage of anti-american protests, and whenever possible, get the shot of a crying Iraqi child in there.

(The Left is Sa-damanated by hatred for America)
The liberal shits running most of the media aren't smart enough to realize that Americans rally behind their troops in time of war. They are shooting themselves in the foot with their onesided coverage. When this thing is over America ought to rise up against the leftwing media and put the SOBS ought of business.

Peter Lemmings should be tarred, feathered, and dumped on the side of the road just over the border.
How he's getting away with all his blatant anti-American rants is totally beyond me.
Here's a little something I whipped up on Photoshop. I 'm using it as my wallpaper so every time I hear some excruciating reporter ask another agonizing question, I just look at why we're doing this.

Meanwhile, Bush and Blair meet behind closed doors to decide how Kofi Annin and the UN can be included in a humanitarian aid project after the war is over. With the UN having forty billion in an escrow account and drawing two billion a month for administering the oil for food program, Kofi can see his cash cow getting thin on short pasture. GW and Tony see this as a golden opportunity to make the UN relevant again, as if it ever was. So goes the shenanigans of the elite while the public remains in a stupor.

impressive screen saver
the most touching photo is the one in lower left ... of a soldier being kissed on the cheek by a young iraqi man ... MO ... thanks
"The Times wants a pyrrhic victory, that's a win with consequences, so we can say that more diplomacy should have been tried. This kind of a game, playing with vital information makes me extremely angry. There's no question that today's front page of the nation's most powerful newspaper does not reflect the truth of the battlefield."
What a shame...
I like the upper right photo best. Look at the smile on the GI while he passes out probably chocolate to the kids. History repeats itself: seems that the GIs did this after WWII.

We are winning this war, as evidenced by virtually ANY objective measurment you can conceive. I have a hard time with anyone who refuses to see this one simple point. Some might attribute this effect to the lack of recent experience with a "real shooting war", and our cultural predilection toward resolving issues within 23 minutes so we can get back to that all-important "word from our sponsors", but I don't think that tells the whole story. This article, and others like it, make the great point that there are many in the mass media, who have an agenda that is diametrically opposed to the success of our campaign.
