This Week in Media Bias History: Soldiers in Iraq Were Bush’s ‘Victims,’ Not 'Heroes'

According to the late 60 Minutes journalist Andy Rooney, U.S. soldiers in Iraq weren’t all “heroes,” many were simply “victims” of George W. Bush. That nasty example from This Week in Media Bias History is from April 12, 2004. Another example includes a Time reporter saying that Ted Kaczynski may have been a killer, but at least he wasn’t a hypocrite.
