Subject: RE: BS: Liberal Media getting Soldiers Killed...
Unverified stories have always been the key to the "success" of the American media, liberal or conservative (however you care to define those terms). Taking a story that comes from an "inside source" and printing it as factual is just as bad as doing the same with an Administration press release ("an unnamed Whitehouse source says that..."). Just remember, the real reason the media exists is to sell SUVs, toothpaste and tampons, and the more readers they have, the more they sell.
