The world view

I am sure students out there have heard their professors say that it is important to read the world media for a complete view of current events because the American press only presents a narrow outlook on things.

Maybe they were on to something after all.

Iraqipundit notes this with his great post attacking the American media for saying that the insurgents in Iraq are showing "resolve":

Got that? These murderers have been demonstrating "resolve." Indeed, throughout the battle of Fallujah and in the battles that have followed, American journalists have discovered many impressive attributes in these criminals. According to a week of major-press stories, the "insurgents" are a cunning and courageous band who have been putting up a tenacious struggle.
Go read the whole thing. Maybe it'll change your thinking a bit.
