Anti-war voices are virtually invisible in corporate media

Democracy Now! reports on a new study about the US media:

As Obama prepares to unveil his plan, the media watch group Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting has put out a study analyzing how the issue of war escalation has been discussed in the opinion papers of the two leading newspapers in the country, the New York Times and The Washington Post. They feature decidedly pro-war views in the months leading up to Obama’s decision on deploying more troops. In the New York Times, pro-war voices outnumbered anti-war ones by a ratio of five-one. While in the Washington Post, the ratio was ten to one.
