25. Wrong.
Nick Berg died because our stumbling, bumbling idiot of a pResident felt compelled to act Godlike by invading Iraq. If, as he should have, he had kept his eye on Afghanistan and al Qieda, Nick Berg and thousands of innocent Iraqis would still be alive. You can blame the media for not asking enough serious questions of this misAdminstration before the war, and being a cheerleader while the invastion was going on, but you can't blame the media for the subsequent events. The Arab street knew all about the abuses at that prison, it wasn't the US media that enlightened them.
