Oh, let me explain it for you Time - since you didn't catch the concept. What I posted was my personal account of reporters with various "big stooge" news agencies over in Iraq, Afghanistan and various other areas.

Now, it is somewhat like your OPINIONS on MSNBC, CNN (whom, by the way, managed to maintain a pressence in Iraq by not reporting Ba'athist atrocities - look it up), ABC etc, except it's an account of what I witnessed.

Now this statement - that is an opinion. Very much like every statement you've made in this thread.

See now?

Btw, how do you know if what the media stooges report is accurate or not?

General Sherman Said it best:

"Newspaper correspondents with an army, as a rule, are mischievous. THey are the world's gossips, pick up and retail the camp scandal, and gradually drift to the headquarters of some general, who finds it easier to make reputation at home than with his own corps of division. They are also tempted to prophesy events and state facts which, to an enemy, reveal a purpose in time to guard against it. Moreover, they are always bound to see facts colored by the partisan or political character of thier own patrons, thus bring army officers to their political controveries of the day, which are miscievous and wrong. Yet, so greedy are the people at large for war news, that is doubtful whether any army commander can exclude all reporters, without bringing down on himself a clamor that may imperl his own safety. Time and moderation must bring a just solution to this modern difficulty."

Fox I do not. But mostly the Associated Press did the best job.
Every from of Media shows a bias, and just because you happen to like perhaps Kerry better than you like Bush, is no reason to dismiss Fox News. You need to watch both biases in order to get the full picture.

Your statement, taken in the context of this thread, was that FoxNews fabricates their news reports.
Why yes I take full responsibility of that post and stand fully behind what I have said.

I agree with this one, I believe the best reporting was done by the Associated Press reporters that were imbeded in frontline untis.

No, but there are giant spiders In Iraq, but IIRC, they arn't even Arachnids. To my knowledge there have been several seriouse injuries from these suckers, but not deaths.
