In September 2003, I wrote an article about how most of the media was reporting on the events in Iraq. 

And while circumstances have changed over these four years, one thing has been fairly constant with most of the media. 

So, this father, whose youngest son (veteran Marine now) served his country with distinction in Iraq back then, decided to express myself directly to the media in the following open letter...

To Whom It Concerns In The Media:

While there is an ongoing debate on the best way to proceed in the war on

terrorism including Iraq, there are many media and political types who seem to be concerned more about their own self-interests in winning the next election.

Nor can it be skillfully explained as just fairly presenting the news whether it is by television, radio, or print media. Now, I am not saying that false reporting of the facts are occurring . . . just that most of it is negative relative to how it impacts the collective American will.

Yes, I understand that death, mayhem, and other like news grabs the audience's attention. However, minimizing reports of the good being done in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere in the war on terrorism should never be the case . . . and God forbid all about ratings, circulation, and/or political interests.

I shutter at the thought of what would have been the result if America's media had done the same during World War II. There should be a line that is never crossed when it comes down to national interests . . . where it is about presenting the good facts too on a regular basis.

Then success or failure can be better judged by all Americans with the voting process deciding on who should take America forward in Congress and the Presidency.

Nor should one's love and pride of America ever be questioned if it is about country first, which should always be the case for every elected official and those seeking election.

You can also learn what many combat veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan think by visiting their non-partisan organization, Vets for Freedom.  And I invite all patriots to read my poem called, Noble Good Being Done, as it is a message too.
