Trial by media 

"Guardian" (of course) doesn't like the treatment that the soon-to-be-extradited to the US Muslim cleric and hatred-inciter Abu Hamza is getting from American tabloids: "Guilty as charged in frenzied trial by tabloid." It would be nice of course if the left was at least consistent and accorded the same presumption of innocence (and presumption of humanity) to, say, American soldiers accused of prisoner abuse - or American soldiers generally - or Americans generally.
