A July 16 NewsBusters post by Greg Sheffield repeats a Little Green Footballs item attacking a New York Times photo of a Shiite sniper "fir[ing] towards U.S. positions" in Iraq. Sheffield's headline on his post: "Fraternizing with the Enemy."
Is even mere depiction of Iraqi militants -- and this is mere depiction, not glamorization -- an act of treason? In Sheffield's eyes, apparently so. Telling the whole story of the war -- or at least a version that diverges from what conservatives want the public to know -- is apparently frowned upon at the MRC.
