Brain Terminal on Nick Berg
Evan Maloney at Brain Terminal writes the following about the media coverup of the Nick Berg video:
One day the media was telling us we had to see the pictures from Abu Ghraib so we could understand the horrors of war. But with Berg's beheading, we're told we can't handle the truth. It kind of makes you wonder which masters the media serves: images that cast us in a negative light get a full airing; images that remind us of the savagery of our enemies are hidden from view, lest we get blood lust. But is it possible to win a war without a little blood lust?
There is a wide consensus in the blogosphere that the media is very blatantly showing its bias against the war, against the Bush administration, and against America.
