Sample story 1 (Associated Press, April 21):
Missile Fire Downs Iraq Chopper; 11 DeadThe Liberal interpretation:
A commercial helicopter was shot down by missile fire north of the Iraqi capital Thursday, killing 11 people, including six American contractors, officials said.
Bulgaria's Defense Ministry said the Russian-made helicopter was downed by missile fire and the victims included a three-member Bulgarian crew.
The fact that Americans are still being killed by militants in Iraq shows that Bush's so-called "War on Terror" is a dismal failure.
Sample story 2 (BBC, April 21):
Twelve Afghan 'militants' killedThe Liberal interpretation:
At least 12 suspected militants have been killed in a clash with US-led coalition troops in south-eastern Afghanistan, the US military says.
The incident happened when militants launched a rocket attack on an American base in Khost province, close to the Pakistani border, the military said.
The fact that Americans are still killing militants in Afghanistan shows that Bush's so-called "War on Terror" is a dismal failure.
(Bonus points: Note the BBC's use of skepticism-quotes around the word "militants". This practice underscores the fact that someone who launches a rocket attack on a military base is not necessarily a militant.)
