Media Monday

| Monday, March 24, 2003

Here are some of the latest outrageous, sometimes humorous, quotes from the liberal media, courtesy of the Media Research Center:

  • What "compliance": "In Iraq today, while the Iraqis continue to comply with the U.N. weapons inspectors, the Iraqi president, Saddam Hussein, was attacking the United States in a public letter to the Iraqis."

    -- ABC's Peter Jennings on March 4.

  • What's "reasonable"• "Most people think (the inspectors are) doing a reasonably effective job at the moment."

    -- Jennings again on March 7.

  • "United"• "Democrats pulling together united front against GOP"

    -- New York Times headline, March 3.

  • That's more like it: "Congressional Democrats divided on agenda; divisions weaken attacks on Bush"

    -- Washington Post headline, March 4.

  • TribLIVE commenting policy

    You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

    We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

    While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

    We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

    We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

    We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

    We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

    We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
