On BC Indymedia, this article cynically asks: "Am I The Only One Who Sees Iraqi Fighters As Human Beings?"
I wrote two days ago that George Bush's assertion that 30,000 Iraqi "citizens" had died was wrong, not just because it didn't give credence to the controversial Lancet study which estimated (more than a year ago) 100,000 dead, but because Bush was clearly and deliberately asked about all Iraqis, including "civilians, military, police, insurgents, translators." The corporate media dutifuly echoed the 30,000 number without question.
Did they? This article argues the exact opposite point. It seems Indymedia is once again drawing a rather long bow in its accusations about the 'corporate media'.
