Collateral propaganda

Two coalition missiles (or bombs) hit a market in Baghdad, killing at least 14 people and injuring 30, according to Iraqi sources. The report is corraborated by Reuters reporters who were on the scene shortly afterwards, and in fact indicates the casualities were notably highter.

It is interesting to note that this story currently headlines BBC News, The Guardian and the London Times. and has a top story status on Reuters.

The shameless propaganda outlet Fox News seems to bury the story, if it mentions it at all. I can’t find it at the New York Times’ website either. It is currently breaking news on CNN (but no details; they are getting slow). The very slow (or missing) American reporting of this item means that the story hasn’t made it to the frontpage of Google News yet.

I am hoping this is just caused by the time difference, and not by a deliberate underreporting of civilian casualties in US media.
