Speaking of the airwaves…

commondreams has this up on the *cough* reporting of the Iraq war…or I should say, the blind acceptance of the “facts” without a hint of healthy cynicism and questioning authority that the serious situation required.

FAIR’s worst moments in journalism.

Last night on CBS, they had a story of an Afghan youth who could not play a musical instrument because the Taliban had outlawed any music that was not religious.  It’s great that he is part of a musical troupe but in no way does it justify us going to war.  I’m sorry that probably sounds cold, but I have to think —how many innocent people have died so this kid could play a musical instrument?  Why does America have to spend billions of dollars policing another country?  Of course, there was no mention of the oil in Afghanistan…
