Reuters Redux -- Media Anti-War Bias

On Tuesday I noted a story by Reuters about Jessica Lynch and how slanted the coverage was of her homecoming. The whole thing focused not on the facts -- Jessica or her homecoming or even that there was controversy about the facts of her rescue, etc. -- but rather on specific conclusions the reporter had come to: government propoganda and the media fiction. It was an opinion BADLY disguised as reporting. Well, amazingly enough, the reporter is furious since this wasn't the article she had written and submitted to Reuters... they asked her to use her byline, she agreed, and then they changed it to reflect their views!! You can't make this stuff up. Today, the reporter, Deanna Wren, sets the record straight on wsj.com.
