    This has been done for more than 100 years. When I was in high school we studied the Spanish-American War. We were told that When the Maine was destroyed in Santiago Harbor that William Randolf Hurst told his reporters that he didn't want the story. All he wanted was the pictures, he would make the story. It wasn't long after that we were at war.

    The news media, be it printed or broadcast, has no interest in putting out the facts. They're only interest is seeing who can top who.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
