As a long-time subscriber of The Washington Times, I’m always impressed with Michelle Malkin’s commentaries, and her article titled “The martyrs no one cares about” in the Aug. 6 edition is no exception.
Ms. Malkin’s column made me wonder why so many Americans — who claim to be educated, informed liberals — quickly (and loudly) protest evil, like the bloodthirsty torture of Michael Vick’s pit bulls, but sit silently as stories about cruelty to people (i.e. Korean missionaries) are carefully buried by the media.
Thank you, Ms. Malkin, for hundreds of well-written articles that remind us we can never truly know if the “side” we're on is “right” unless we have all the information available, something that cannot happen until the media quits filtering the news “for our own well-being and protection” and starts reporting all the details we need to make up our own minds.
Sadly, until enough of us demand “objective reporting,” the media will continue to spoon-feed us their one-sided version of what is actually going on in the world.
So thanks again, Ms. Malkin, for being a rational and intelligent voice, one that stands out, big time, in the buzz and whirr of commercial-minded media madness. Lorette Lough Baltimore, Maryland
