For our bilingual readers: Check out this CNN piece. Then look at this SPIEGEL piece on the same topic. Notice the difference? Note that CNN offers context and qualification - where SPIEGEL makes not attempt at anything but black-white propaganda. SPIEGEL also sets up the article so as to discredit those calling on the media to report progress in Iraq (in this case General Michael Walsh) - or anything but the latest bombing for that matter. Just more evidence that SPIEGEL ONLINE is a profoundly biased media outlet.
Anyone willing to translate the SPIEGEL piece into English - please post that in the comments section and we will put up a side-by-side comparison later. (Posted by Ray)
