Glenn Beck Asks: Unfit to Print?

Unfit to Print

Glenn is not surprised that this story about a 22 year old Air Force airman, who was shot on July 4th, was not reported in the news media.


The shooter was an anti-war nut job.

If the situation was reversed, it's safe to say that this story may have been making the cable news rounds. Read the transcript. Insiders listen here.

Another news story you most likely haven't heard out of Iraq.

Why haven't you heard it?

Because it's positive.

It's a story about how Iraqi civilians picked up weapons and fought along side Iraqi security forces during a successful raid. This kind of story never sees the light of day because it doesn't quite fit the liberal news agenda. Read the transcript Insiders listen here.

Yep...the liberal media bias is (unfortunately) alive and well (err...more like SICKOS!) and many outlets are guilty of damaging our nation and destroy our integrity.

I think it is very accurate to claim that they love to share the bad and ugly, but never the good going on over in Iraq.

I think it is very accurate to declare that with such attitudes, they embolden our enemies and continue to endanger our brave and hardworking troops!

For shame!!!

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

The Good:

(Report: Iraq Progress Good on 8 of 18 Benchmarks)"While all of those conditions have not yet been met, and the new strategy is still in its early stages, there are some encouraging signs that should, over time, point the way to a more normalized and sustainable level of U.S. engagement in Iraq, with a decreasing number of U.S. combat forces increasingly focused on a core set of missions, such as those set out by the bipartisan Iraq Study Group," the report states.

The Bad:
The report says that Al Qaeda in Iraq has shown "resiliency" with its ability to pull off mass-casualty attacks, largely through vehicle-based bombings, but the report also says that the number of those types of attacks decreased in May and June.

In the report, the administration accused Syria of supplying as many as 50 to 80 suicide bombers per month for Al Qaeda in Iraq. It also said Iran continues to fund extremist groups.

But Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, said the report shows the U.S. is headed in the wrong direction in Iraq.

"The Democratic Congress hasn't exactly met its benchmarks," Kristol told FOX News. "What's happening on the ground is quite encouraging. I don't want to overstate it, it's a war ... but in the real world in Iraq, as opposed to the artificial benchmark war in Washington, Iraq is getting better."

And now, for the most completely ridiculous quote of the day! I don't even want to mention this idiot's name on my blog!!

Um, Christine, the story you claimed we wouldn't read out of Iraq? The one Glenn Beck, (erstwhile shockjock wannabe from CT), said the liberal media wouldn't report?

It's on on your link.

The media reported it.

The point being that not many news outlets (especially in the written media) printed this story.
