May 17, 1999

"Examining the transcripts of two influential (US) TV programs, ABC's
"Nightline" and the PBS "NewsHour With Jim Lehrer," FAIR found that only 8
percent of the 291 sources were critics of NATO's bombing. Forty-five
percent of sources were current or former U.S. government and military
officials, NATO representatives or NATO troops. On "Nightline," the study
found, no U.S. sources other than Serbian-Americans were given air time to
voice opposition."

Is it news or propaganda?
