An alternate universe:
conservative pundits assume that establishment media such as the Times are partisan because that's how their own journalists are expected to operate. They believe Howell Raines runs The New York Times the way they know Wes Pruden runs The Washington Times.

I think this concept can be extended to the Arab world as well. They know how their press and leadership twists and distorts the truth so they believe the Western press is behaving the same way. Actual truth and evidence notwithstanding.
