Anti-American Media are Perverse Propagandists by Barry Farber from June 2004….

Mark Twain said a lot of things wittier and funnier. But he never said anything more valuable than this: A man who can read – but does not, has no advantage over a man who cannot read.

He’d probably also agree that a nation free to tell itself the truth -but does not, has no advantage over a dictatorship. Media coverage of Iraq these days makes me fear we have become that nation. Some comparisons, please.
