  •  You're FINALLY starting to see (4.00)
    VERY limited coverage of this in the media..... VERY LIMITED coverage.... but that's at least SOMETHING....

    Before, this was invisible.  The most you'd see was an amputee who was now runnign track or something - "Yeah, I was wounded but I got over it... shucks.... wish I could go back to Iraq..."

    I have to give credit whare it's due.... the Ministry of Propaganda has done an outstanding job of controlling what we get ot see..... No real bad news.... positive spin on the little that comes out....

    BTW, any updates on Woodward?.... funny how he disappeared after the initial injury was announced...  I expect if he's as bad as expected, it doesn't make very good TV.

    •  Make that Woodruff..... (none)
      If only we had a Watergate..... who am I fooling... we've got a dozen, we need a media willing to push the issues and a COngress that'll investigate
    •  Coverage (none)
      Our local newspaper had a huge spread on a returning vet rehabbing from amputation. I read the article, searching for one hint of either his or editorial comments about the Noble Cause - some bitterness, something. But it was all about his struggles to deal with the injury. I wondered how this young man felt - angry, betrayed?

      The last I heard was that they were not going to issue further statements about Woodruff, possibly because his injuries were that severe.

      •  Or possibly because (none)
        he's in a persistant vegetative state, but Frist hasn't seen the video yet.
        </snark>
        •  Actually (none)
          snark aside, this was my first thought when I read about the news blackout. They never talk about PVS.

          back to snark - except that the media DOES cover Bush, who is in a permanent PVS

          •  I've seen Bush on TV (none)
            and his eyes follow people in the room, and moaning sounds come out of his mouth. It sounds like "please...help...me".
