About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Coverage of the war in Iraq & Afghanistan.

I posted a few months ago about the dearth of news coming out about the war since our troops were unequivocally winning and doing it despite many ludicrous restraints placed on them (e.g. if they're shot at from a mosque they can't shoot back).

Now this story confirms what I and others had noticed. I think the excuses given amount to a huge pile of bullshit. IMHO the studio heads don't want greater coverage because they realized there is no way they can continue pulling the wool over the eyes of John Q. Public as they denigrate the war and our military's role in it. Too often any lies they tell regarding the war and the conduct of the troops get exposed by independent bloggers (e.g., when the LA Times altered a photo of an American soldier so that it appeared he was aiming a gun at some Iraqi civilians. He was actually holding out his hands to offer assistance. I know I'm not the only one who remembers that farce). Unlike the Viet Nam War, there are now other more reliable sources of news than the MSM.

So now they'll keep silent until another Abu Gharib style screwup surfaces, then we'll once again be assualted by their breathless assertions of our military's incompetence/inhumanity.

I took journalism in high school and was fair at it. The main reason I never considered a career in it was that I didn't want to prostitute my integrity. No lie, fact. Seems I made the right decision.

There is always the opportunity for a second career as a REAL journalist. I am sure you could find a REAL newspaper or on line magazine to write for.
