BS: Disgusting

I guess the media is biased after all.

I read about this all over, but Steve G's is the first place I saw it.

UPDATE 9/14: Here is an explanation of he origins of those photos and captions.

It would be more convincing if it was the same captioner, or, at least the same new organization. But good to think about anyhow.

Agreed. My point wasn't as specific as a particular service's double-standard. It's still the overall picture being portrayed by the media however.

I (and I presume most people) don't consider taking basic provisions by deperate people "looting." But I think they are covering the TV/DVD/etc looting with a bit too much relish. All of which just serves to reinforce stereotypes.
