Myth of Balance

Insurgents don't need publicity to succeed. Journalists are NOT assisting them in any way if that's what the beef is here with the jingoists. They'll use it sure, but it's not necessary. They need weapons and money. They have them.

Every time I hear balance from a conservative I cringe. It assumes that the equation is already skewed against them when in fact the opposite is true. What they want is to snuff out the speck of truth from the scene.

Balance allows equal time for liars. The press is guilty of falling for that. They will continue to use that successful tactic to spread propaganda for the administration. That's what works.
