For a perfect example of hypocrisy look no further than the news reports about how the Iraq Study Group (ISG) included in their report that the Bush administration has underreported violence in Iraq in order to hide their policy failures. â€œWhoâ€ is underreporting violence? Am I crazy or is it the news media that is supposed to report this? Do reporters, especially the embedded reporters need to rely on government controlled news releases in order to find out what is happening in the world?
If anyone wants to know how much violence takes place in Iraq he or she can tune into Al Jazeera; you know that anti-American new organization that has the nerve to report news! Oh, wait a minuteâ€¦I forgot that we live in a democracy with freedoms that the rest of the world hates and because of those freedoms I do not have access to al Jazeera because our monopoly corporate media outlets want to control what information I get! Oh, what it is to be free. Think about it!
