    Dishonest reporting (yet again)

    I emailed the following letter to Bryan Bender, a reporter at the Boston Globe:


    In regards to your article of 6 November in the Boston Globe, specifically the following item:

    "Last week, a study in The Lancet, a British medical journal, estimated that 100,000 Iraqi civilians, mostly women and children, have been killed since the war began."

    Wouldn't it be more honest and balanced to have reported that this number is highly contested and that more credible sources range from a much smaller number UP TO about ten percent of that number (and that ten-thousand-ish figure includes Iraqi military, insurgents AND civilians)?

    Even the extremely anti-war website Iraq Body Count puts the number at 16371 as of my viewing (7 Nov 2004 4:37 AM Pacific time).

    I have little hope for much of a response.
