There is a good explanation for why they do this. People ignore depressing news when it is repeated time and time again, it also does not mirror reality because there is far more going on in the world than war. Human interest stories are popular with readers, not to mention Afghanistan was a hellhole five years ago, last week and will be a month from now, there will be no lack of coverage.
Stop trying to portray the media as "covering up" the real news, they cover it all the time. There is more to life than death and destruction.

Your military propaganda surrounds you at all times - even puerile trash films like Transformers have the US military running into every country at will and blowing things up.
You media constantly tells you they are your enemies - they are not - your enemies are the guys in your government, and the rich scum who give them orders.
