Just sixty plus yrs later. Good find Kat! This artical should be mailed to every congress person on the hill.. Just for a REMINDER.
Reading this post reminded me of a Rush Limbaugh program I listened to a few years back, about a year into the WOT. Rush's program was not about the division within the Roosevelt Administration about whether they should or should not go to war with Germany, but rather it was about how the MSM was reporting on the war once it had been declared. The same negative, pessamistic comments we heard about the WOT (and continue to hear today) were reported in the MSM about the war with Germany. As the old saying goes, the more things change, the more they stay the same.
Great find Kathianne!
On D-Day 2005, the MSM would also send live graphic images of the death and destruction on Omaha Beach directly into the homes of Americans, thereby undermining the determination to fight the war. As the MSM images of the horror of combat splashed across the screen, punctuated by toothpaste and home equity loan commercials, Americans at their dinner tables would ask, Our boys are being slaughtered to save Belgium and France?! No way! Bring them home. We lost in Viet Nam for many reasons, but especially because America lost the will to fight as the MSM beamed images of the horror of combat directly to the dinner tables of Pennsylvania and Iowa. Our boys are being slaughtered in a jungle bloodbath to save Viet Nam?! No way. Bring them home. And that is what finally happened.
