I do not believe you will find accurate, unbiased information on network news, PBS or in the conventional media (including The New York Times) regarding the current issues in our country or Iraq. It is obvious that many of these media sources are only interested in destroying President Bush and his agenda. I recently read an article from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution about U.S. Rep. Jim Marshall, D-Ga., who just returned from a fact-finding trip to Iraq. His response was that what he witnessed and came back with made him very angry, not with the progress that's being made, but with our news media and the inaccuracy of what is reported daily. Rep. Ike Skelton, D-Mo., on the same trip reported that 3,100 projects are being worked on in northern Iraq, including soccer fields, schools, refineries, etc., none of which are reported by the news media.
Marshall's was quoted as saying, "These are goals worthy of a fight, of sacrifice, of more lives lost now to save thousands, perhaps tens or hundreds of thousands in the future." He spoke to man soldiers at different rank levels and found no one saying anything different. The daily progress, the good news, the "rest of the story," versus the reported falsely bleak picture weakens our national resolve and empowers our enemies.
