It’s come to this. A US Congressman, Jim Marshall, Democrat from Georgia’s 3rd District, says media bias is responsible for US troop deaths in Iraq.
From a column he penned the Atlanta Journal Consitution earlier this month, some of the highlights: “I found myself wondering whether the news media were somehow complicit in [Sgt. Trevor A. Blumberg’s] death … We may need a few credible Baghdad Bobs to undo the harm done by our media. I’m afraid it is killing our troops.”
It really doesn’t get much lower than that.
