One Last Bit of Perspective on the CNN “Story”

I’m not sure how many of you clicked through Bingley’s link to the pitiful excuse of an excuse. If you survived the initial shock and disgust, but had neither the patience nor the stomach to wade throught the comments, buried therein was a gem. A Cpl Barrett from Portland OR vented, thought about it…and came back to vent again.. After the understandable anger at spending tours in Iraq and wondering where the US media was. When our kids desperately need support and the American people needs to hear their stories. He noted:

Why do you think, for example, that they don’t show the video of the Crocodile Hunter’s death? It is because there is a point where enough is enough. I don’t know why I should support a station that graphically shows my brothers in arms dying.

Bless his heart. BLESS. HIS. HEART.
A stingray accident versus our life’s blood.
It doesn’t get more upside down than that.

    I’ve hated CNN since 1991. (Fuck your bullshit “Highway of Death” coverage.)
    Cpl. Barrett summed it up perfectly. *hoists another pint*

    FWIW, it’ll take a direct order from a high ranking officer for me to watch CNN again.
