question one: if the media is so liberal, why doesn't it go after all of the conservative wingnuts in power with their secrets hanging out? (mayor west, gannon/guckert, the mule sex slip of the toungue pop into mind)
question two: do we have afghanis saying to the american press that they rioted over a magazine that is american based? are afghanis really that hip to our printed media? what is the real story behind that riot? if it was a newsweek article (which takes a suspension of disbelief not unlike that which is needed to watch "Lost"), fine, there is a problem. big ol' problem. but is the world really that in tune with us? can newsweek really be so widely read in afghanistan as to start a riot, and if so, why weren't riots sparked by the past reports of abu gahrib, or after the judgement in the lindy engle case? i just have the feeling that there is a deeper issue that is being hidden by the conservative media swarm around newsweek.
