Where Is the (North) American Press?

A friend from Argentina sent me the following picture today. It is self explanatory and has been seen everywhere in the world except in the United States. Why? In analyzing Bush for several years I keep finding that it is not only his immediate circle that insulates him -- the press insulates us.

Again, why? Does the press think it too painful for us to see how much Bush is reviled by the rest of the world? Is the press afraid of Bush and reprisals if they show photos like this? Why won't the press photograph flag-draped coffins from Iraq? It is not just up to Bush -- but the press has to cooperate with him. And they do to such an extent that they function as enablers to an alcoholic father/leader. It is time for an intervention.
