What the heck is going on with the press lately?
Imagine, if you will, if, during WW2, every single time a plane was shot down, every time a POW was captured, etc. if it was reported on the news.
(i.e. radio at the time) THERE WOULD BE NOTHING ELSE ON THE NEWS! This is where we are now! This is ridiculous!
As has been stated many times, we, the American public (or even the world public for that matter), only see small snippets of what's going on in the
war. Lately however, these snippets shown on tv seem to be only helping one side....the SIDE OF THE ENEMY!!! By looking through the small keyhole
that the news provides, one would think that the coalition is LOSING! Of course, anyone with half a brain, can collate the info for themselves and
see the real picture....but a person is smart...people are stupid.
For some reason, the news seems focused on (comparatively) insignificant losses (no disrespect here...just in terms of numbers), and not on the gains,
such as: We have hundreds of Iraqi POWs---they have around 10 or so, We have destroyed hundreds of military targets, and own the skies over
Iraq---they have destroyed none, being content only with a helicopter that had to land, and some POWs that took a wrong turn into them, By most
accounts, it is possible that Saddam could be dead or injured despite the "tapes"---the same can not be said about Bush, In just a few days, we have
managed to control a good part of Iraq---Saddam has not regained one lost area.
This is the reality of the war situation folks. Saddam is not winning, that's for sure. So why isn't the news illustrating this? Who knows? Like
I said, the spin doctors must be on vacation....
