Abu Ghraib: the US Army uncovers some abuse of prisoners, and investigates.
In the middle of the investigation, the perpetrators defense lawyers enlist the Old Media in the defense of their slimy clients by giving the Old Media salacious personal photos of some of the abuses.
The Old Media runs RELENTLESSLY with the story for weeks - driving Bush's poll numbers, and poll numbers for supporting the Iraq War, from the mid 60's to the low 40's.
Iraqis and the ISG uncover systematic corrution in the UN's Oil for Food Program - which in dollar terms is MUCH bigger than either the ENRON or Halliburton or even the California power crisis scandals, AND OLD MEDIA DOESN'T COVER IT AT ALL.
Even though the corruption involves high level managers of the UN bureaucracy - including Kofi's son and the director of the program, and member states who were against using force to enforce UNSCR#1441 and hold Saddam accountable for all the other UNSCR's which comprised the terms or armostice for the 1991 Gulf War.
In spite of the fact that the corrupt thieves who plundered the UN Oil for Food Program stole money from the Iraqi people - ALL 25 MILLIUN of them, and enriched Saddam and his tyrannical, genocidal regime.
WHY WOULD THE OLD MEDIA BLOW ABU GHRAIB OUT OF PROPORTION, AND BURY THE OIL FOR FOOD SCANDAL?
Because the Abu Ghraib scandal could hurt Bush, and the Oil for Food Scandal would help him.
The Old Media has no shame.
They are not objective, centrist or merely anti-Bush; they are FOR the enemy.
