The main stream media is the real villain...

I'm getting sooooo sick and tired of crap like this (hat tip Daily Kos):

It's official. Conservatives no longer have a monopoly on complaints
about a liberal media bias. In the wake of Newsweek's bungled report that U.S.
military interrogators "flushed a Koran down a toilet," here is Terry Moran,
ABC's White House reporter, in an interview with radio host and blogger Hugh
Hewitt: "There is, I agree with you, a deep anti-military bias in the media

Enough already! If you think reporting on torture and atrocities is anti-military and un-American you should be banished to the 8th level of hell. There is no hope for a cure for your level of partisanship and 'win at all costs' attitude. Don't worry, you won't be lonely long...Karl Rove will be down in a jiff.

Thank God some conservatives/Republicans still understand that without MORAL superiority, we have already lost the Middle East. Unless we can remove legitimate reasons for Muslims to suspect our intentions, it makes it all the more easy for them to view us as 'crusaders' or 'after their oil'...or God forbid, much worse. Follow the link and read the can of whoop ass John Cole opens up on Hugh Hewitt (emphasis mine).

Everyone repeat after me:

Reporting on abuses that have been committed by our troops, in our
name, is not anti-military. While I am not arrogant enough to attempt to divine
the motives of every journalist who reports on such abuses, Hugh appears to be
up to the challenge. I find his attack on the reporting of the outrageous abuses detailed at length by the NY Times
to be both disturbing and disingenuous.
Apparently in the myopic worldview of Mr. Hewitt, reading and
reporting the just-released documents the Army itself created is both
'anti-military' and 're-hashing' an old story. Let's not focus on the fact that
few, if any, have been punished for these transgressions. Let's not focus on credible reports that these incidents continue to occur. Instead, if Hewitt is to have his way, we should all focus on the 'anti-military' stance of the media.
