"Faux News" has been banned from our household for quite awhile, because I got so upset about the positive spin that was being put on the Iraq debacle.
I'm not sure what is meant by "positive spin". If you're referring to the "talk shows" FOX airs such as Hannity & Colmes and O'Reilly, then yes, you're obviously getting the opinion of the particular host, the majority of whom support our actions in Iraq.
However, for most of the war's duration, FOX news was the only network that ever reported in its regular news segments *anything* good that was happening in Iraq. Why was that? Good news doesn't "sell" like body counts do. Unfortunately, too many people on the left have become so myopic about the war that they either refuse to believe or simply can't admit that there has actually been some progress.
In the last news story I saw on FOX (several days ago - I rarely watch TV anymore), the foreign correspondent gave a veritable laundry list of everything that was still wrong in Baghdad - IEDs, six policeman killed, not all neighborhoods secured, etc. He then went on to report that despite the continuing sporadic violence, many neighborhoods were secured, people were moving freely throughout most of the city, many businesses were up and running again, etc. Good and bad news. Seemed pretty balanced to me.
I'd like to think that even someone strongly against the war from the beginning would be glad that some progress has been made, that some good things are happening. For a long time, FOX has been the only network to give you both sides of the story.
