No, not the terrorists. We know why they hate us. (It's because we have freedom, liberty, and don't grovel to their prophet.)
The question is, why does the press hate us?
Focusing ever more sharply on the mostly bicoastal, mostly liberal elites, and with their more conservative audience lost to Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, mainstream outlets like the New York Times have become more nakedly partisan. And in the Iraq War, they have kept up a drumbeat of negativity that has had a big effect on elite and public opinion alike. Thanks to the power of these media organs, reduced but still enormous, many Americans are coming to see the Iraq War as Vietnam redux.Very long, but good article from City Journal and the WSJ's Opinion Journal.
