Media bias?

"Of course, the media focuses on bad news, on death and violence. First of all, [the Iraqi war] is a war which has been hugely expensive in terms of blood and treasure. And secondly, that's the way life is. It's not a bias of the media. If it was a bias, then why has cable news talked about murders? Why don't they have whole shows that talk about childbirth?.... So it's incredibly naive, it's partisan, and it's ironic for people who claim to be rooting out bias to start saying we should be biased in how we report the war." - Richard Wolffe
