Mass media’s typical reporting bias?

How many unborn toddlers were murdered today because of the humanistic, paganish decisions of the United States Supreme Court?

“Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” James 4: 17 (NIV)

I went to a funeral today so I was not planning on posting tonight. However, I also received my weekly copy of World magazine. It had a short article that was so indicative of the general mass media reporting bias that I decided to post it tonight and go back to my planned topic on the following post. The article as printed in the June 2, 2007 issue page 10 reads:

“Lost in translation

Here’s one nuance the Associated Press missed out on when it reported on claims by the father of Guantanamo Bay detainee Majid Khan that his son suffered through torture at the U.S. detention facility. Turns out, Khan’s definition of torture might vary a bit from the way many understand it. Ali Khan said his son suffered mental torture when he was forced to use deodorant that was unscented, and had to play sports with a ball that wouldn’t bounce, among other injustices. The AP article didn’t mention the details later divulged by Fox News.”

Oh, what a difference leaving out the small details sometimes makes. I wonder, where was Senator Dick Durbin from Illinois? Why wasn’t he on the Senate floor denouncing the U.S. military for being comparable to the soldiers of Nazi Germany? Could it be that he is up for reelection next year and he has decided to be seen but not heard. At least not heard in the same manner as he was before?
