You're right. You have to go elsewhere to get many of the facts.

Well, it was a member of the military doing something selfless and heroic, so obviously it's a made up story...right Senator John (I went to Cambodia and I didn't get this injury from getting hit in the butt with rice) Kerry?

Well the fact is, out of all the printed/media that I have run across, the Telegraph (outside of bloggers) is the only one that consistantly is supportive and prints good news for the troops. The other papers, you will see this from the local..nothing on the state papers. Thus far at least. They just like printing the doom and gloom.
