Bias Watch, part 8,902,902,813

We are losing the war in Iraq. There has been a steady increase in the assaults carried out by the insurgents against coalition forces. The attacks over the past year have risen from about twenty a day to approximately 120. We are an isolated and reviled nation. We are tyrants to others weaker than ourselves. We have lost sight of our democratic ideals. Thucydides wrote of Athens' expanding empire and how this empire led it to become a tyrant abroad and then a tyrant at home. The tyranny Athens imposed on others it finally imposed on itself. If we do not confront our hubris and the lies told to justify the killing and mask the destruction carried out in our name in Iraq, if we do not grasp the moral corrosiveness of empire and occupation, if we continue to allow force and violence to be our primary form of communication, we will not so much defeat dictators like Saddam Hussein as become them.
The opinion piece cited above is, in fact, from the NY Review of Books, as noted in this Belgravia Dispatch piece. As is the nature of the saturation of leftist bias in the MSM today, such tripe is just passed along as known fact, status quo reality.
Many of my lefty friends cannot even see the media bias we righties decry exactly because it is so blatant and omnipresent. To most on the left side any newscast that doesn't call Bush an idiot ot Iraq a quagmire is obvious bias...Hmmm. At what point is debating the undeniable just pointless?
