Portfolio points to a Wednesday interview with Chris Wallace on WOR radio, in which he criticized media outlets for failing to report on October’s U.S. troop death toll in Iraq:
There is bias in the media…Do you know how many American soldiers were killed either in direct action or even in accidents in Iraq in the month of October? Thirty-four…That story is untold. I haven’t heard it anyplace except Fox News….You don’t see it in The New York Times. You don’t see it in The Washington Post.
But the day of Wallace’s interview — Oct. 31 — wasn’t the end of the month. Thirty-nine U.S. troops actually died last month, a fact reported today by The New York Times and the Washington Post, among other papers.
