If, as my good friends on the left argue (quite plausibly, I might add), Iraq was not linked in any way to the 9/11 attacks, what are we to make of the AP consciously linking the conflict in Iraq to the 9/11 attacks in its latest ‘body count’ dispatches? Here are your choices:
- The AP has bought into the Bush administration’s false consciousness of a 9/11-Iraq link.
- The AP has a right-wing bias in its reporting.
- The AP had to “balance” reporting of the Saddam Hussein appellate decision in order to create the appearance of fairness.
- All of the above.
If you chose the last option, you too can write for Salon.com.
