Do you feel that the liberal media sufficiently gives us the scoop on both side's of the story? For example, the war in Iraq.

First and foremost this is a leading question. But I happen to agree with the implied assessment of the media. They do put a liberal spin on the stories that come in. The Liberal agenda thrives on emotion and therefore the old media addage "if it bleeds, it leads" still sticks and is more relevant now than ever. The war in Iraq has resulted in a larger electricity grid, schools and hospitals, better health standards, however, none of those bleed so they become non stories.

No, I do not think that the media tells us everything. If you notice that depending on which channel you are watching you sometimes get different or mixed information. Some channels you can tell if they lean more toward the liberal or conservative side (especially around election time). I try not to rely on everything that the media says especially about the government because I do believe that some of it can be trumped up.
