SAEN: Wrong Again!
The SAEN has been wrong on Iraq from the start. It's news coverage has been consistently biased towards presenting only the negative. I presume that Bob Rivard was no fan of Operation Iraqi Freedom, still isn't a fan of our presence there, and is going to do his best to mold the paper's reporting to his own viewpoint. In doing so he damages the credibility of his paper with his readers, although clearly his "peers" are as wrong-headed as he is. I have consistently shown that good things are happening in Iraq, and the SAEN has consistently ignored them; history is passing the SAEN by, and it's refusing to report it. The SAEN cannot even perform the most basic function of a newspaper: reporting facts. Instead, the paper has become the spokesman for editor Bob Rivard's own personal views. How sad for us. The fact that the SAEN is the "Newspaper of the Year" is further proof that public distrust of the media is well founded, and growing.
I am going to have more on the SAEN's biased reporting on Iraq in a day or two so stay tuned.
