I'm putting journalism on notice

Does Newsweek ever read Michelle Malkin? They should. It's the weekend's must read.
...investigation found 15 cases of detainees mishandling their own Qurans. "These included using a Quran as a pillow, ripping pages out of the Quran, attempting to flush a Quran down the toilet and urinating on the Quran," [Brig. Gen.] Hood's report said. It offered no possible explanation for those alleged abuses.
Michelle wonders this AP story is headlined, "US Confirms Gitmo Soldier Kicked Quran."

I'll call it for what it is. The Associated Press and most other international news agencies don't regard themselves as reporters, but comentators. As Citizens of the World rather than of any one country, they see it as their duty to help America feel the sting of that "valuable lesson," as Michael Moore puts it, delivered on 9/11. Nothing gives them greater pleasure than to see the racist, imperialist United States taken down a peg or twelve. And if that means inoccent people have to die as a result of their reportage, well, it's somehow the fault of America for forcing them into their role as watchdogs.

Elitest, arrogant, fear mongering propoganda artists. And they call us bloodthirsty. If my analysis seems black and white, well it is. As much evil is caused by the actions of these Islamist cheerleaders, they're not evil people. Most of them, anyway. But until the western media can break out of this Anti-American chic that's poisoning our thousand year old western culture, I will continue to treat their actions as those of evil men.

Reporters all over the world, you're on notice. As long as you continue to hate me because it's fashionable, I will continue to return the favor you hypocritical death merchants. Stop supporting destruction and get on board the solution train. Or do you truly hate America more than the peace you profess to love?

UPDATE: I'm not alone in my distrust, either.
The Gallup organization noted that public trust in television news and newspapers reached an all-time low this year, with 28 percent of responders expressing high confidence in them.
