US troops tell about “brutal side” of Iraq war - Foreign news source takes a shot at our media

WASHINGTON - The leftist weekly magazine The Nation has dedicated its entire July 30 edition to the testimonies of 50 US troops shocked by the heavy civilian casualty toll exacted by the US-led occupation of Iraq.

Just the carnage, all the blown-up civilians, blown-up bodies that I saw ... I started thinking like, “Why? What was this for?’” said army specialist Jeff Englehart.

The weekly said it was the “the first time so many on-the-record, named eyewitnesses from within the US military have been assembled in one place to openly corroborate ... a brutal side of the war rarely seen on television screens or chronicled in newspaper accounts.”

As if to confirm the assessment, only the Los Angeles Times daily had written about The Nation’s issue, which on Saturday continued to go unreported by the country’s main television stations and newspapers.

1. Why is news always considered leftist?

3. I would consider The Nation definitely left leaning. Nothing wrong with that
The shot at our media is in the 4th paragraph.

4. Reality has a well known liberal bias
In the words of Stephen Colbert.
