I too believe there just is little truth-telling and though I also wouldn't consider it a conservative media (it's not), I feel the media is actually in a state worse than that, where it's all decided by corporate interests and "officialdom" is the new media, where it has leaned in support of the war, because, after all, many profit from war like Lockheed Martin and Bechtel.

But I truly believe there IS a steadily growing anti-war movement worldwide. It was the anti-Iraq war sentiment that has sharply reduced Blair's majority. It was mainly the Iraq war that fused many of the 57 million who voted against Bush to the polls in November. Berlusconi is resigning because of the anti-war sentiment in Italy. And we saw on the second anniversary of Iraq many people in the streets, in more than double the cities than on the first anniversary.

You're right that a great majority are still in the apathetic column. But I do believe there is progress happening, that I believe.

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton
