What moral equivalence?

Many conservative commentators have taken the mainstream media to task for drawing a moral equivalence between the actions of the Hezbollah terrorists and actions taken by the state of Israel. Wake up and smell the Jihad! Nothing could be further from the truth.

There is no moral equivalence drawn in the MSM. Israel is almost uniformly portrayed as the evil, child-killing aggressors while Hezbollah is portrayed as the gritty, oppressed freedom fighters.

From the three main American networks, the BBC, Reuters, and the New York Times on down, the MSM is almost entirely anti-Israel, anti-American, and anti-Bush. It’s time that we all stop being surprised. No amount of high dudgeon on the part of the people is going to filter into the consciousness of the media elites.
