24. Yeah

I remember that anti-war activists and Michael Moore routinely outnumbered pro-war supporters in the corporate media during the run-up to the war and how the corporate media endlessly mocked Colin Powell's "performance" at the UN Security Council where he laid out the rationale for invading Iraq and how the UN Weapons Inspectors were lauded as heroes and given lots of airtime to refute the Bush (mis-)administration's rationale for invading Iraq.

Wait! What? You don't remember any of this either?

Of course, for those of us whom are sane and remember the whole of the Iraq war, coverage didn't get legitimately harsh until at least it was crystal clear that there were no WMDs to be found and our troops began taking heavy casualties from militants and people realized how much of an all around mess Iraq had become as a result of our invasion/occupation, which, unfortunately, did not really happen until AFTER Bush was safely re-elected.
