What media bias?

Major terror plot against US ignored by US media
The mainstream U.S. media outlets have failed to report a major terrorist plot
against the U.S. - because it would tend to support President Bush's use of NSA
domestic surveillance, according to media watchdog groups.
News of a planned
attack masterminded by three Algerians operating out of Italy was widely
reported outside the U.S., but went virtually unreported in the American
Italian authorities recently announced that they had used wiretaps to
uncover the conspiracy to conduct a series of major attacks inside the
Italian Interior Minister Giuseppe Pisanu said the planned attacks would
have targeted stadiums, ships and railway stations, and the terrorists' goal, he
said, was to exceed the devastation caused by 9/11.

The media would be glad to report on the potential bad things that would happen from wiretapping, but they completely ignored a major terrorist plot getting stopped by wiretapping. No, the media's not biased at all, are they?

Good post Ed.

Normally I would be against the tapping of conversations that originate & terminte within the country. Possibly long distance also.

But this is a time of war, and people should expect the elected officials to use any means at their disposal to ensure that attacks do not occur on our soil again. Nor to our soldiers & citizens abroad if possible.

The left are so blinded with their hatred of Bush, that they are also blinded to the fact that the tapping is indeed preventing further attacks, and helping to locate & identify terrorist cells.

They are so blinded that they would accept another attack just to say that the Bush administration had failed. Personally, I think many on the left actually wish for another attack. Pathetically sad.

Keep up the good work!

I agree with anonymous.

Edward, it would be a good idea to get out there a bit more, when you can. I know with school it's hard, but people need to hear from you. Answering comments once in awhile would help too. :)
