It is also who dies. Five American dying in Iraq is a tragedy worth reporting, a few hundred dying in American bombing is not so much.

Media is controlled (either directly or due to false sense of patriotism) or biased. Probably both.

In most countries media are licensed so they can't publish anything too harsh against the government.

Perhaps that's another variable dictating their biases.

This annoys me so much. They are all Humans.
