Editorial page tribute to U.S. fallen in Afghanistan showed mainstream media's bias

May 30, 2012

Your list of the names of U.S. soldiers who have died in Afghanistan since last Memorial Day on Monday's editorial page was nice, but it conveniently left out the body count ("U.S. fallen in Afghanistan," May 28).

Since 2009, when Barack Obama became president, 1,355 U.S. soldiers have died in the Afghan war. Yet the mainstream media, including The Sun, is not counting.

Of course, whenGeorge W. Bushwas president, we got the body count every day. Where is the fairness in The Sun's approach? It is not to be found.
