Why the Press is Losing its Audience

If there was ever any doubt in your mind that the Corporate Media is merely a mouth piece for George Bush and his puppet masters Cheney, Rumsfeld and Rove please consider this: A fourteen year old girl was allegedly raped and she and her entire family murdered by five members of the US armed forces in Iraq. So far, so bad. There is a birth certificate proving she was 14, however the US Command in Iraq at first claimed she was twenty five and then claimed she was twenty. Now they have settled for calling her a “young woman.” This is exactly as accurate as calling her an “elderly infant.”

Despite evidence to the contrary the establishment press, including National Public Radio is referring to her as a “young lady.” Want to know why? Because, apparently, as I heard on NPR the other day there seems to be some controversy over her age. What’s the controversy? “Her Birth Certificate says she was 14, but people in her town thought she was fifteen and the US Command in Iraq says she is a young woman.”

So we will call her a “young woman” and end the controversy.
