"When Iraq seemed destined to become a huge American embarrassment, our media couldn't get enough of it. Now that Iraq looks like a success in the making, there's a virtual news blackout.

Of course, the front pages need copy. So you can read all you want about the heroic efforts of the Chinese People's Army in the wake of the earthquake.

Tells you all you really need to know about our media: American soldiers bad, Red Chinese troops good.

Is Jane Fonda on her way to the earthquake zone yet?"

Shame of it all, for Jane, is that she couldn't work out her dream of visiting the heroic Iraqi militants and planting some roadside bombs with them. The cheers from Move On dot Ogre might very well have made her a star again.
