I'm finally seeing the political stance of some US papers (U2 content)
Just because I have too much time on hand I took a look at the Drudge Report. At this site I found a link to a U2 concert review by the NY Post.
One of the difficult things for me as a foreigner not even living in the USA is taking into account the political stance of the papers when reading an article. Well, my mind is clearer now with regard to the NY Post. What a bunch of anti-liberal suckers they are!
Read the following review of U2's MSG concert (link: http://www.nypost.com/entertainment/34316.htm)
People criticize me but I know it's not the end
I try to kick the truth, not just to make friends

Um, the Drudge Report and the NY Post aren't exactly indicative of journalism in America.__________________
Both are more about entertainment than journalism and the Post is actually a gossip rag. Moreover, I believe that an individual working for the Post was killed by anthrax so they're even less likely to be unbiased.
If you're actually interested in the political stances of U.S. newspapers I would suggest reading the editorial sections of the following papers online:
Boston.com (the Boston Globe)
STLtoday.com (Saint Louis Post-Dispatch)
SunTimes.com (Chicago Sun Times)
PostIntelligencer.com (Seattle Newspaper)
accessatlanta.com/ajc/ (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
DallasNews.com (Dallas Morning News)
Ok, that ought to do it. I've given you Northwestern, Southern, Western, and Midwestern newspapers so that should cover the gamut of regional opinion.

Bono is always accused of being bombastic. *shrugs* Journalists slagging on Bono's well intentioned yet arrogantly perceived stage antics is nothing new.
What that journalist failed to acknowledge is that it would have been irresponsible for the band to ignore the tragedy and turn the other cheek so the show might go on. As being the sensitive band who immerses itself in worldly causes to better educate themselves and their fans, I personally applaud U2 for recognizing the fallen victims and through entertainment, helping their audience realize that life is precious and we shouldn't forget those lost lives, yet life does go on despite tragedy.
