US - Why does the media support terrorists?

The New York Times does it through their leaks and fabricated stories. The BBC does it through bias, overtly and by ommission, and lying. There are others.

Take the case of John Walker Lindh, dubbed the American Taleban. In a plea bargain "Walker Lindh pleaded guilty to serving in the Taliban army and carrying weapons in doing so". As part of the deal the government dopped charges related to the death of a CIA agent and this:

"The dropped charges against Walker Lindh included conspiring to kill Americans overseas, providing support to al Qaeda and other terrorist groups, and using firearms and other destructive devices during crimes of violence."

But none of that seems to matter to some in the media. For instance, read this bleeding heart story about Lindh. The title of the piece? "Innocent".
