    A stark contrast to the few military members who decide to go waaaay left....especially the ones who have never seen combat (like a certain lieutenant who had his 10 minutes of fame recently) and yet capture headlines simply because they fit the liberal and MSM agenda.

    I do think there should be a push on the media to feature some of the many heroes that can be easily found at Blackfive and other milbloggers. I do not remember seeing a front page in the Tribune, when Paul Smith was awarded the Medal of Honor.

    Heaven forbid! Put a true hero on the front page of a newspaper???? The type of person some college campuses regard as "not the kind we want representing our college" (but fall all over themselves when it comes to a snake oil salesman like Chamberlain)????

    Ya know, even the horror of those two soldiers only made page 6 today. It's a travesty. It really is the media that is hampering the 'connectiveness' of the troops and the people.

    And intentionally so.... that is what irks me the most; the media simply cannot plead ignorance. They are unabashedly biased and it truly hurts this country.

    Agreed. If there ever comes a day when they 'regret what they're doing,' which I think will come, the people are going to be very harsh, seriously. What will make them change their tune? Nothing good for US.
