Coalition Deaths Drop

Kronology has the numbers:

"We've lost 16 Americans so far this month, compared with 81 and 135 in May and April respectively. "

Nick also made an interesting catch. Peter Jennings mentioned a quote from a reporter whose name Jennings said he couldn't recall at the time.

Nick tracked down the reporter in question. He writes for the far-left TruthOut, and he writes this sort of fair and balanced commentary:

Forget what you know of fair play. Leave aside notions of decency. Ignore hypocrisy and scream at the top of your lungs until they burst. The soul of this nation is at stake, the culture war continues unabated, and it is time for the Left to storm the battlements. It is past time. If you are cowed by tall Presidential ratings, you are of no use. If you have no stomach for a dirty fight, you aid the enemy. If you cannot take joy in the sound of a sword striking meat and drawing blood, step aside.

So, there you go. That's the sort of writer informing Peter Jennings, who then informs the American people.

And of course I'm not claiming that Jennings doesn't have the right to consume all the rabidly left-wing rantings he likes. I'm just saying he doesn't have the right to lie to our faces about his political leanings. He can be a far leftie if he likes; but he doesn't have the right to lie about that fact, simply because he finds that the truth would hurt his ratings.

There's more at Nick's site.
