Which is worse?

1)underwear on heads of men who tried to kill you?

2)raping, and sexually abusing those in your care and under your protection?

if you watch CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, you'd think #1 was worse than #2.

America's debt problem is a "sign of leadership failure"

We have "reckless fiscal policies"

America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.

Americans deserve better

I have to say, this is really fucked up. It always disgusts me when shit like this happens.

As for whether I'd rather be raped by a soldier or be forced to suck a fellow prisoner's dick.... tough call. They'd both want to make me shoot myself.

I totally agree that the majority of the mainstream media is slightly liberal. However, I'll point out that three of the four agencies you listed (CNN, NBC and ABC) have all run stories about the scandal. CBS hasn't (yes, no suprise there). Also, dozens of even more liberal media sources have run the story, including the the UK Times, USA Today, the Washington Post and that commie rag the NY Times.

One of the few major news organizations that hasn't printed one word about this is oh-so-fair-and-balanced Fox News. I remember them giving a bit of coverage to theAbu Ghurayb scandal. Are the good people at Fox (who of course have nothing against the UN) leading me to believe that #1 is worse than number #2?
:confused:
