No Real Debate on Iraq
In his column titled The non-debate on the war: Media shuns legitimate discourse Michael writes, “Until major newspapers and networks permit proponents of ending the war now to be taken seriously, Americans will hear no meaningful debate about whether it is in our national interest. The current non-debate is about tactics for muddling on through, rather than purposeful discourse to decide whether to stay or go. My bet is that most editors and producers will prefer to remain properly housebroken. It's less messy to propagate power than to question it."
