perhaps some of you should re-read the book
on October 11, 2009
it's not about partisanship in the media - it's about the media in this country failing to be a watchdog and writing independently from government as they are well within their rights to do. the authors aren't implying in any way that the media leaned to the right when reporting on iraq but that they didn't do the work of journalists and present two sides to each story. they didn't investigate dissenting voices- which did not consist mainly of democrats. they were lazy and too busy chasing the dramatic, personalized, fragmentized and normalized stories that their readership would be interested in reading. news is a business. they don't care so much about taking sides as they do about increasing viewer/readership. only a hater would read this book and assume it's about partisanship.
