It's not a surprise that the mainstream media ignores all the good things happening in
Iraq, but there is very you can do to refute the media's defense that well, good news
doesn't interest people; we tell the stories that people want to hear. They've got not a
leg to stand on here though:
....he Times printed an excerpt from the letter — which Starr had intended to be read by his girlfriend in the event of his death — in which he wrote, "I kind of predicted this . . . A third time just seemed like I'm pushing my chances."How could anyone pick that first part out and ignore the powerful, honest, and touching
The Times stopped there, but the letter continued:
"I don't regret going, everybody dies, but few get to do it for something as important as freedom. It may seem confusing why we are in Iraq, it's not to me. I'm here helping these people, so that they can live the way we live. Not have to worry about tyrants or vicious dictators. To do what they want with their lives. To me, that is why I died. Others have died for my freedom, now this is my mark."
second part? How could it be illustrated any more clearly? The NYT has an agenda.
