Newsweek and the Cheney hunting story, and Arab Journalists

I get our latest issue of Newsweek and it's devoted to Cheney's Hunting accident including a picture labeled dying quail (page 31 and it looks darn healthy) and then there is so little coverage of fellow journalists doing serious work to advance freedom and liberal ideals.

MSM has really gone to hell save a piece once in a while as found here by Big Pharaoh in NYT.
The Big Pharaoh: The New York Times has an excellent piece on those Arab journalists whodared to ask the smart question of 'What brings more prejudice against Islam, these caricatures or pictures of a hostage-taker slashing the throat of his victim in front of the cameras, or a suicide bomber who blows himself up during a wedding ceremony?'

Unfortunately, these very few brave men are waiting for their trial. This is why ladies and gentlement we're going to stay in this pit of darkness for a very very long time.
No one at Newsweek particularly concerned about the Arabs in the pit of darkness; just the darn quail.
