Thursday

Litmus test for news sources. Look up the headlines on your favorite paper or website for April 7 or 8, 2004. Is the big story that 12 or more Marines died in Fallujah, or that a mosque was hit? I'm not sure how much weight these facts should be given, even how the facts will play out (actual number of Marines killed on that day? actual number of civilians if any killed in the mosque? accidental hit on the mosque or returning fire that came from the mosque?), but watch how liberal sites play up the mosque getting hit, mainstream and conservative sites minimize it.
