A round-up of the media can be found here.

If you read Abu Aardvark then you know that the imperial presidency reckons its the Arab media that's at fault, not the US policies in the Middle East. Abu says:


"...according to the Bush administration - the Arab media is a hostile cesspool of hatred and propaganda, one of the main problems facing the United States in the region, the primary reason for anti-Americanism, and an irresponsible source of incitement."


In contrast, the imperial presidency finds Murdoch's Fox News Channel 's coverage "fair and balanced."

As the New York Times says, with "each setback and blunder in Iraq, the administration has ... cheerfully [denied] that anything happened and sticking to its original plans while international support for the occupation has steadily fallen to its current minimal level."
