    That many newscasts from the era mentioned the American causality numbers for the day to start off the broadcasts.

    The thing I really dislike about the media covering deaths is that they give such sprawling, detailed pieces on the first few people killed. Then a year later the violence is the same, but if you're serving at a non-senior rank, you'll only get written up in the local paper. Often the media reports that "three soldiers were killed" or five, or seven, and you don't even know their names.
