Bias? What Bias?

Newsbusters reports on a letter from General Bill McCoy, the military official in charge of Iraqi reconstruction, to the Washington Post. His point? The reporter that came to follow him around and wrote a very negative story on Iraqi reconstruction was so set in his opinions on Iraq before he came that his opinion could not be swayed even after witnessing the truth.

He already had his mind made up.

What's wrong with this story? How many people read the original story without ever hearing the truth from General McCoy? And what on earth is wrong with the current media that it is completely unable to tell the truth?
