To Whom It Concerns In The Media:
While there is an ongoing debate on
the best way to proceed in the war on
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.
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
Noble Good Being Done, as it is a message
