"Even as public opinion shifted against the war - only 37% of the American people are said to still back the war -- most of the media downplay reporting on demands for troop withdrawal." -- That's from an announcment that United for Peace and Justice and Media Channel have announced that they are going to start a campaign to address the media disaster in Iraq.
"Many journalists and media organizations have since blasted one-sided coverage," Media Channel's Danny Schechter writes. "Editor & Publisher, a media industry trade magazine, has consistently documented and criticized pervasive media practices that boosted the war with more 'selling than telling.'"
