The Media

It’s subtle, but it’s left. Yesterday Powerline looked at headlines after Bush’s press conference.

Let’s look at some headlines today.

The Washington Post: Canadian, British Aid Workers Freed in Iraq
The BBC: Western Peace Hostages Freed in Iraq
The New Zealand Herald: Harmeet Sooden and Two other Hostages Freed in Iraq

Subtle huh. I really thought they were “freed” as in let go. Until as I was flipping (I flip through and then go back to read) CNN showed up with 3 Iraq Hostages Freed by Special Forces. Good for them.
