Awesome article

Here is a piece written by Robert Kaplan which holds closely to my views on where our national media is taking us. The media with its odd mingling of self-awarded virtue and lust for billions in cold, hard cash. Since some won’t read the article, I must place a part of it here that is very important:

“The first Medal of Honor in the global war on terror was awarded posthumously to Army Sgt. First Class Paul Ray Smith of Tampa, Fla., who was killed under withering gunfire protecting his wounded comrades outside Baghdad airport in April 2003.

According to LexisNexis, by June 2005, two months after his posthumous award, his stirring story had drawn only 90 media mentions, compared with 4,677 for the supposed Quran abuse at Guantanamo Bay, and 5,159 for the court-martialed Abu Ghraib guard Lynndie England. While the exposure of wrongdoing by American troops is of the highest importance, it can become a tyranny of its own when taken to an extreme.”

So, so true. Cut and paste this to your browswer to read the article: http://www.opinionjournal.com/editorial/feature.html?id=110010686
