Media Likes the Bad News First - "If it bleeds it leads"

Violence in Iraq kills at least 48; local forces free hostage

Notice the article headline: "Death, destruction!! Oh and by the way a silly little Aussie was rescued....but for now it's back to DEATH and DESTRUCTION!"

When 48 people die, whether Iraqi (except bad guys), or American or whoever it may be, it is news - I agree. But a wonderful and heroic story took place today in Iraq where joint Amerian and Iraqi forces rescued an Austrailian hostage after 47 days.

Why not a story on these heroics? Why does the MSM always have to lump in any kind of death and destruction with any good story? Simple - Bias and arrogance plain and simple.
