Welcome to the bizzaro world of the NYTimes. It is a world where only bad news about President Bush is printed, but none of the good news. Case in point the recent Australian election. In order to show that the whole world is rebuking the President, they point out that this is just the latest also pointing to political changes in Spain and England. However, they completely ignore the elections in France, Germany and Canada, all three of which have elected stronger supporters.
They also don't even report accurately on the election, plenty of which had absolutely nothing to do with Bush or America or Iraq. They make the claim that the new PM will remove Australia's 500 troops. However, the truth is they are only talking about removing the 500 combat troops currently here, not all the troops as the report says. And they wonder why they are accused of liberal bias!
