MSM still misleading public on disaster aid

Headline in today's Washington Post for an article regarding the ongoing tsunami disaster relief efforts:
Japan Becomes Top Donor With $500 Million Pledge
Of course, the reality is that Japan is the top cash donor. When all forms of assistance are considered -- including services and tangible goods -- the US government far outpaces others. And that's not even counting the private generosity of the American people.

I hate having to belabor this point (it's really twisted to play "I'm more selflessly generous than you are"), but the mainstream media (MSM) continues to push the false idea that America is being stingy.
