Exactly. The average person takes what the news media says as fact, and not merely opinion. This makes it very easy for the media to make an event appear one-sided, and therefore more appealing to their political side of the fence.

I personally don't feel that the media has any business in a war zone. Its not something people need to see. Bad things happen every day over here. We get paid to deal with it, and make judgements and decisions as we see fit. The citizens of the world do not. Yet they do get to see it, and force their opinions on their political represtatives, effecting the outcome of a war they had no part in.
