Do you think the Western peoples have a backbone anymore? Look at the war in Iraq: It's not even two weeks old and people are comparing it to Vietnam and saying the war has failed. I'm just thinking back to WWII and what it would have been like to fight that war with todays media. I all most thinking having the 24/7 coverage is bad thing from the eyes of "getting the truth."
I think we would get more "truth" if we had to wait longer for our news. We would have more time to put things in context. The 24hr channels are all trying to be first and haven't done the best job putting things in context for the average viewer.
