The media is pressing for war? I've heard many liberal commentators say things along those lines -- that the U.S. government is not proving its case and the "conservative" media (aka the "mainstream media") is not performing its watchdog role.
Well, I was just in the grocery store and I think they're right. The cover of this week's Weekly World News, is proof of that. This mass-circulation weekly leads off with the following headline: "Saddam feeding Christians to Lions."
Of course, there are some on the U.N. Security Council who will believe this to be false -- despite the long track record of solid reporting the News has demonstrated.
