Exclamation Media crap...

Quote:
Sulfuric acid can be used as a blister agent, but it more commonly can increase the size of conventional explosions, according to U.S. officials.
This is a quote from CNN.

Note: according to US officials

Where is the world heading to?
Soon the officials will inform about everything, and anybody else is ignored... or?

This thread would be a nice place to post all kind of media crap(please quote).

It just happened that I saw this on CNN:

Click the image to open in full size.

In case the image will be gone, it contained a text that read: The struggle for Iraq.
For gods sake... Is this for Iraq? Isn't this an insult for the intellect? Or do the american people really indulge themselfs with such crap? It's really hard to believe they do...

for Iraq, ha? or is the Iraq the 5x'st state?(x >= 1)

Unlike you, I don't like to have a happier life by living in ignorance. My sources of information are as var as possible.
As about the word hate... I wouldn't put it like that. No way. But of course, could someone expect more than either with us or against us from the likes of you? I doubt it.

That's a bold statement. Since I have yet to come across a news channel that was without its own bias, can you enlighten us to your methods that have led you to finding the "truth"?

a bold statement demands a similar one.
as about the truth... how to put it, please quote me where I said I have found the truth? The truth usually lies in the middle...
The fact is, few know precisely what's really going on regarding something. What I am trying to do is get somehow informed by reading from all sides and trying to make an opinion about something myself. Is that the truth? Tell me the person who can tell that for sure and wise man are you.

OK, so you admit that you have no special way to discern truth, but merely strive to form your own opinions. So ignorance is just doing a poor job by viewing singular news media, and lack of ignorance is demonstrated by viewing multiple sources and averaging the results?
How big is your sample? US media? BBC? Al-Jazeera? How do you average polar opposites?
